- Advertisment -

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has given his first interview since his arrest in Mykonos last week and insisted he was “scared for his life” during the incident on the Greek island that led to him being found guilty of aggravated assault, resisting arrest and repeated attempts of bribery in a Greek court on Tuesday.

The England defender was handed a 21-month prison sentence, suspended for three years, with his lawyers having officially lodged an appeal.

Speaking to BBC News at 10, an emotional Maguire said hearing the guilty verdict was “horrible” and that he “couldn’t quite believe it”.

“I don’t feel I owe an apology to anybody,” he said. “An apology is something when you have done something wrong.”

Maguire added: “Obviously the situation has made it difficult for one of the biggest clubs in the world, so I regret putting the fans and the club through this, but I did nothing wrong. I found myself in a situation where it could have happened to anybody and anywhere.”

Asked how badly he was hurt, Maguire said: “They hit me a lot on the legs. It wasn’t on my mind. I was in that much of a panic. Fear. Scared for my life.”
