Harry Maguire breaks Twitter silence after clarifying Mykonos ordeal

Harry Maguire is looking forward to getting back playing football.

The Manchester United captain posted on Twitter for the first time since he was arrested in Greece last week, insisting that he is excited top get back on the pitch.

Maguire, 27, was found guilty of aggravated assault, resisting arrest and attempted bribery following a fracas in Mykonos following an attack on his younger sister Daisy by two Albanian men.

The defender’s legal team has lodged an appeal against the verdict.

Maguire initially pleaded not guilty to all charges.

He spoke about the ordeal for the first time in an interview with BBC reporter Dan Roan which was televised on Thursday night.

In the interview Maguire said he was attacked by plain-clothed police officers.

Maguire posted on Twitter this evening: “Thanks for everyone’s support over the last week, I’m pleased to have had my say and share the true version of events. Looking forward to getting on with life now and the season ahead with @ManUtd and @England.”

It’s a difficult situation when someone is charged — being vocally supportive of them — but I believe Maguire when he denies these charges. Not because he’s our captain but it doesn’t add up and I think the Greek’s have made a meal of it.

He was charged and found guilty in less than one week. Fair trial?
