Lawyer to Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has released a statement confirming the player is in good condition despite facing a second night in police custody and expects him to be released without charge on Saturday morning.

The England International was detained on Thursday night, along with two other men, after an brawl on the Greek island of Mykonos, with the trio said to have attacked police officers.

Maguire and his friends were transferred to Syros by boat on Friday afternoon and are due to face a state prosecutor on Saturday morning at 11am local time (9am BST).

“A case file was opened against the trio for the occasional offenses of violence against officials – court officials, disobedience, bodily harm, insult and attempted bribery of an employee,” confirmed a statement from the Greek court on Friday.

Maguire’s lawyer, Konstantinos Darivas, has now spoken to media in Greece and says the United centre-back denies the allegations and is expected to be released tomorrow.

“The process is ongoing. Maguire is in a great condition,” Darivas told the Greek edition of Gazzetta.

“We’ll be able to say more tomorrow morning. He denies the allegations and I am fully convinced that tomorrow he will be released without any charges.”
