Manchester United captain Harry Maguire and two other unidentified persons arrested in the Greek Island of Mykonos for assaulting policemen, will face the state prosecutor today.

Maguire, 27, spent the night in a cell along with two other men thought to be fellow players aged 28 and 29.

The trio will face the state prosecutor in the island of Syros.

They will spend a second night in a Greek cell after being arrested for allegedly attacking police officers after a raucous night out.

The £85million England international was allegedly involved in a bust-up with a group of other Englishmen before becoming ‘very abusive and aggressive’ towards officers who arrived to intervene.

One of the three men was transferred to Syros on Friday while wearing a mask and dark sunglasses while hiding his face from the camera, the Daily Mail reported.

The men have been charged with aggravated assault. Two of the officers suffered facial injuries during the scrap after they were allegedly hurled to the ground, punched and kicked.
