MAN UTD NEWS
Harry Maguire has been granted a full retrial after a successful appeal against the conviction for bribery, aggravated assault and resisting arrest he received in Greece yesterday.
A Man Utd statement read: “An appeal against yesterday's verdict was lodged this morning by Harry's legal team.
“In accordance with Greek judicial process, the filing of an appeal extinguishes the initial court verdict and nullifies the conviction.
“The appeal has been accepted and will lead to a full retrial in a more senior court.
“This means that Harry has no criminal record and is once again presumed innocent until proven guilty.
“Accordingly, he is not subject to any international travel restrictions.”
