Harry Maguire has been found guilty of charges of aggravated assault, resisting arrestand repeated attempts of bribery after an incident in Greece last week.

Greek police claimed the three defendants were involved in an altercation with officers on the island and that bribery was attempted after they were taken to the police station.

Maguire, 27, pleaded not guilty to all charges and was represented by one of his lawyers, Alexis Anagnostakis, in the hearing on Tuesday as he was not required to be present in person.

The hearing took place in Syros with his father Alan in attendance and all three defendants were found guilty.

Sentencing for the British trio will follow and Manchester United are expected to make a statement.

Despite the charges hanging over the defender England manager Gareth Southgate named the centre-back in his squad for the upcoming Nations League games against Iceland and Denmark.

“It is a decision that I could only take on the information that I have. I have spoken with Harry and I have the insight to the story which is different to what’s being reported,"Southgate said.

"In these instances, I think you can only make decisions on the facts you are aware of. Clearly, if facts change further down the line then I have to review that decision.

“But, I have a fantastic relationship with the boy, Harry has been an outstanding character for us and I have no reason to doubt what he is telling me. It is important that he knows he has my support at this moment.”
