Man United captain Harry Maguire has been arrested in Greece

The Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has been arrested outside a bar in Mykonos, Greece after an altercation with police.

According to reports, the England defender was on holiday in the country, where he was involved in a scuffle with unknown men outside a bar in the early hours of Friday morning.

He was detained after allegedly fighting the policemen called onto the scene.

Man United issued have out a statement confirming the incident. “The club is aware of an alleged incident involving Harry Maguire in Mykonos last night,” the statement read.

“Contact has been made with Harry, and he is fully cooperating with the Greek authorities. At this time, we will be making no further comment.”

The incident occurred just days after United concluded their season, following the Europa League semi-final exit on Sunday.

Maguire, who featured in all of United’s Premier League games in the previous campaign, will not be required to self-isolate upon return to England, as Greece is considered a “safe travel” destination.

Mykonos is a preferred getaway destination for Premier League footballers amid the COVID-19 pandemic, with those visiting the island not forced to take part in a 14-day isolation period upon their return to England.

How Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will react to the incident remains to be seen, but if true, it is sure to go down like a lead ballot as the Norwegian prepares his squad for the forthcoming campaign, which will feature Champions League football as a result of their third place finish.
