Harry Maguire accused of 'fantasy tales' by Greek prosecution lawyer

Maguire sat down with the BBC on Thursday, his first interview since the verdict, and claimed that he was scared for his life as he thought he and his friends were being kidnapped, adding that he tried to run away after being assaulted by a police officer. Under Greek law, the appeal nullifies the original conviction so there will be a full retrial.

Harry Maguire has been given extra leave from Manchester United training by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. "Three policemen were injured and had to be treated at hospital".

You see a lot of reports going around and it's such a huge honour to be captain of Manchester United, something I'm really proud of. I know the truth.

He said that what Maguire described in his interview as kidnapping was "being driven to the island police station by his own driver, that he and his group had employed on the island, following police instructions, who had intervened in the incident and identified themselves and who instructed the driver to take them to the police station".

Maguire said he tried to run away because he had no idea who the men were, insisting that his "conscience is clear" and the bribery allegations were "ridiculous". Speaking with the BBC, Maguire said he thought they were being kidnapped and said he seriously feared for his life.

His brother, Joe, and friend, Christopher Sharman, have also been found guilty of their distinct charges as both were also involved in the commotion with the officers.

"Maguire claims that when the minibus stopped, he did not know that it was outside a police station", he said. "Of course it could cause him more problems in future", he said, also stating that another officer received an injury to his wrist.

The England defender announced on Wednesday that he is appealing the decision made against him in a court on the island of Syros and now faces a retrial. The people who are close to you, the ones who trust you.

"I regret being in the situation, obviously the situation has made it hard".

Paradissis said there is no way Maguire could not have realised he had been taken to a police station. He appears to be accusing the police when they are the victims here. I am the captain of Manchester United.

"Maguire is also a key member of manger Gareth Southgate's England global squad and was initially picked for September's Nations League matches against Iceland and Denmark".

Maguire was also asked about his withdrawal from the England camp. "I play for one of the biggest clubs in the world so I regret putting the fans and the club through this". I'm physically and mentally ready to play [so] no, I'm disappointed.
