HARRY Maguire’s conviction has been “quashed”, Manchester United have said today.
The defender 27, was found guilty of aggravated assault, resisting arrest and attempted bribery following a clash with police on the Greek Island of Mykonos.
The £85million England star was granted a retrial this afternoon – with Man Utd insisting their skipper now has no conviction or criminal record and is innocent.
A spokesman for Manchester United said: “An appeal against yesterday’s verdict was lodged this morning by Harry’s legal team
“In accordance with the 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.”
