Manchester United captain Harry Maguire ‘arrested’ on Greek island

Manchester United say captain Harry Maguire is “fully cooperating” with Greek authorities after reports he was arrested on the island of Mykonos.

Local media are reporting the England footballer, 27, was arrested following an alleged fight on Thursday night.

Two other Britons were also detained, according to the local reports.

Manchester United said in a statement: “The club is aware of an alleged incident involving Harry Maguire in Mykonos last night.

“Contact has been made with Harry, and he is fully co-operating with the Greek authorities.

“At this time we will be making no further comment.”

Maguire’s fiancee, Fern Hawkins, posted a picture of the pair in Mykonos on her Instagram page on Thursday night.
