In the previous trial, the witnesses invited by Maguire’s defense attorney stated that on the night of the incident they saw two Albanian men suspected of injecting dementia into Maguire’s sister Daisy. Xi quickly lost consciousness, and the two sides clashed. Maguire and others called a car and rushed to the hospital. On the way, they were stopped by plainclothes police. Maguire and others thought they were kidnapped, so they got out of the car and collided with plainclothes police. .

Several witnesses (local police officers) proposed by the prosecution stated that plainclothes police tried to quell the conflict, but the”British” at the scene refused to calm down, and Maguire resisted fiercely during the arrest. A police officer was injured as a result. After arriving at the police station, Maguire said to the officer:”Do you know who I am? I am the captain of Manchester United. I have money. I can give it to you. Let us go.”

The Sky Sports reporter during the trial said that the Greek police were not equipped with law enforcement recorders, so there was no video evidence to prove their claims.

After the verdict was announced, Maguire said:“After today’s trial, I have notified the team of lawyers that I will appeal. I still insist that I am innocent and I am confident of getting a verdict of innocence. Myself, my family and my friends are all victims.”

The prosecution representative said in an interview with Sky Sports:”If you are an athlete, you are a role model for many people, then You should accept what you have done and apologize for it. As of today, we have not waited for their apology. They said it was all the fault of the police. The court did not accept this statement. The victim and the police were attacked. All I want is an apology.”

The official statement of the Manchester United club read:”Manchester United is aware of the Greek court’s decision today. Maguire denies all the charges and insists that he is innocent. It should be pointed out that the prosecution did not determine the charges until the day before the trial, and the defense did not have enough time to prepare for the submission of evidence. The request to delay the trial was also rejected. On this basis, there is a large amount of evidence that can refute the prosecution. The allegations. Maguire’s team of lawyers will now appeal, hoping to get a fair trial later.”
