Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has been arrested on the Greek island of Mykonos for allegedly attacking police after a fight outside a bar, according to local media.
The 27-year-old centre-half was allegedly spotted by police in an altercation with other British tourists last night.
When the officers intervened, three Englishmen are alleged to have fought back physically and verbally while resisting arrest.
As a result, the three were detained in the early hours of Friday – among them the £85million England international, who was reportedly led away in handcuffs.
Manchester United said in a statement: ‘The club is aware of an alleged incident involving Harry Maguire in Mykonos last night.
‘Contact has been made with Harry, and he is fully co-operating with the Greek authorities.
‘At this time we will be making no further comment.’
Footage posted on a Greek website shows Maguire earlier that night chatting with fans in the Matogiannia area of Mykonos town.
Britons were singing his name in the street and posing for selfies with the soccer ace before things went awry.
It is not clear whether that video was filmed at the same the bar as the alleged incident not whether anyone else who appears was involved in the altercation.
His girlfriend Fern Hawkins posted an Instagram picture last night with the caption: ‘Holidays with you … ♥️’.
United players are taking time off after their Europa League exertions earlier this month.
The club were eliminated by Spanish side Sevilla last Sunday.
Had they won that fixture they would be up against Inter Milan in the final tonight nin Germany.
Maguire said he was ‘devastated’ by the semi-final exit against the Spanish side last week.
He added: ‘We deserved to go through but ultimately we fell short at the semi-final stage, for the third time this season.
‘It means a lot to us, the boys are devastated. We have a good group of lads who know what it means to play for this club and losing isn’t acceptable. Getting to semi-finals isn’t acceptable and we now have to look at taking it another step.
‘Maybe that little bit of inexperience cost us in the end. Even when we are on top, creating chances we shouldn’t concede that second goal.
‘They worked it well down the right but we have to do better. We conceded from two crosses and it’s not good enough.’
