Harry Maguire free to focus on England and the United

Football News

Harry Maguire is unlikely to be called to court for his appeal hearing this year due to a backlog in Greece’s legal system exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic, leaving the Manchester United and England defender free to focus on his football, including the European Championship this summer.

Maguire was found guilty of aggravated assault, resisting arrest, and attempted bribery during a holiday on Mykonos in August 2020, and it was anticipated that he will be called before the summer for an appeals court hearing on Syros, the Cycladic island chain’s capital.

However, a judicial official told the Guardian on Friday that owing to the pandemic’s effect on the tribunal’s caseload, this was no longer necessary.

The official said, “Only emergency cases are being held. We have a backlog that dates back many years, and we have adjournments every week. This case will most likely not be heard until the end of 2021.”

On Friday, United declined to comment on the new developments.
