Man Utd captain Maguire’s lack of apology branded ‘shocking & unsportsmanlike’ by Greek prosecutor

The Red Devils defender maintains his innocence, but questions have been raised by the prosecutor as to how local police sustained injuries

Harry Maguire’s refusal to apologise after being found guilty of aggravated assault, resisting arrest, and repeated attempts of bribery has been branded “shocking” and “unsportsmanlike” by one of the prosecution’s lawyers.

The Manchester United captain, who was dropped from the England squad after the verdict, has repeatedly professed his innocence after being given a 21-month suspended prison sentence after an incident on the Greek island of Mykonos.

The centre-back intends to appeal the verdict, with his club fully behind him, but prosecution lawyer Dr Ioannis Paradissis has raised questions over the injuries suffered by policemen in the altercation, adding that his clients are yet to receive an apology from Maguire’s camp.
