Manchester United captain Harry Maguire was released by a Greek prosecutor on Saturday after two days in detention over a brawl on the island of Mykonos, Greece's Skai TV reported.

It said that England international Maguire would respond to charges next week. Quoting a local website,, Greece's Ethnos newspaper said the charges against Maguire, getting into an altercation, were considered misdemeanours.


This means that Maguire can be represented by his lawyers in court in a hearing scheduled on August 25. A lawyer for Maguire, 27, was not immediately available for comment.

Manchester United issued a statement on Friday saying it was aware of the incident and that Maguire was fully co-operating with the Greek authorities.

Mykonos is well known with tourists for its lively night scene. Proceedings were taking place at a courthouse on the island of Syros, near Mykonos.
