Harry Maguire’s trial has been held in Greece and has featured a series of wild claims from both the prosecution and defence.
The court heard that the Manchester United captain and England international, who has already pleaded not guilty and is not in attendance in Syros, allegedly attempted to bribe officials in exchange for letting him go.

However, Maguire’s defence team claim that his sister was attacked by a pair of Albanians on Mykonos before their driver took them to the police station instead of the hospital.
These are the best of the tweets and jokes from Harry Maguire’s trial in Greece as the revelations continue:
We don’t even know who he is over here in England, keep him there.

They say his bail was £50,000 so Man Utd offered to pay £40,000 plus Jesse Lingard.

Fuck me he couldn’t even spot a Sevilla forward in a Sevilla shirt in the penalty area last week so how can he spot two Albanians?
