25 Aug Harry Maguire’s lawyer asks Greek court to delay Manchester United star’s assault trial | UK News
Harry Maguire’s legal team have asked a Greek court to postpone his trial over an alleged altercation with a police officer – claiming they haven’t had enough time to prepare.
The Manchester United footballer’s lawyer, Alexis Anagnostakis, said the list of charges was finalised just yesterday, so he only received a hard copy of the file this morning – two hours before the trial.
He didn’t even have the time to discuss the charges in depth with his client, he said.
Maguire is not in attendance and has already pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated assault and attempted bribery of an official.
The England defender spent two nights in custody last week after he was arrested during a holiday with family and friends on the Greek island of Mykonos.
The 27-year-old was arrested following an alleged brawl, along with two other Britons.
Police said there had been an altercation and an exchange of words with an officer who tried to break up the fight.
