    Harry Maguire says he has no regrets over an incident in Mykonos in 2020, which led to him being found guilty of assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest and attempted bribery.

    The 29-year-old was given a suspended jail sentence of 21 months and 10 days after the incident.

    The Manchester United defender has appealed against the guilty verdict but that appeal will not be held in a Greek court until June 2023.

    Despite the ruling still hanging over him, Maguire says he has no regrets and a clear conscience over what happened two years ago.

    ‘Some people will believe me; some people won’t,’ Maguire told The Times. ‘But one thing I would say about Mykonos is that I have no regrets.

    ‘I don’t worry about what the outcome is going to be. I don’t worry about anything to do with it because my conscience is so clear about what happened that night.

    ‘The people who were there that night, there were nine of us, we all understand what went on and what happened.’

    He added: ‘I’m a lad who wants to live as normal a life as possible. I can remember at the time, when it happened, a lot of people were like, “Well, why hasn’t he got security following him around? He’s got enough money to do that.”

    ‘But the bottom line is, I’m on holiday with my family. I’m not on a lads’ holiday. I’m on holiday with my wife and my sister and my brother.

    ‘I want to live a normal life. If I can get away without having a security guard stood beside me watching over me, then I will do.’
