Harry Maguire, captain of Manchester United, was detained for questioning in the Greek island of Mykonos for assaulting officers after a brawl, Greek state TV ERT said.

Harry Maguire was detained after assaulting officers who were called in to break up a brawl between two groups of tourists. Two other Britons were also detained.

“The football player was verbally abusive to an officer and then hit him,” a police official said. “The three were resisting when brought to the Mykonos police station.”

United said it was “aware of an alleged incident” involving the England center back on Thursday and has made contact with him.

United’s players are on their offseason break after losing in the Europa League semifinals last weekend.

Maguire is the world’s most expensive defender, having signed for United from Leicester last year in a deal worth 80 million pounds
