Last night, Harry Maguire was dropped by England after being found guilty of claims levelled against him following an incident in Mykonos, Greece.
Today, the Manchester United captain remains defiant. With the season just a few weeks away, Maguire hasn’t much time to get his head straight and his body ready for a long, 2020/21 term.
However, Maguire’s stance on the situation hasn’t wavered. He continues to defend himself, maintaining his innocence, despite the findings in a Greek court yesterday.
We’re told he has already appealed the decision, though last night, Maguire sent a defiant (and cryptic) message on his Instagram stories.
Quoting Buddha, Maguire posted a photo stating:
‘Three things cannot be long hidden. The Sun, the moon and the truth.’
The focus is on that last part. Maguire and those Greek officers know the truth. Whether what was said in court yesterday is correct or not remains to be seen. Our captain certainly thinks it couldn’t be farther from the truth, mind…

Without wanting to get into all the legal side of things, it seems so out-of-character from Maguire. Thus, it leaves us all thinking that his side of the story is correct. Sure, I’ll be the first to admit I’m looking at the situation through red-tinted spectacles, but the whole situation just seems a bit fishy.
I guess we’ll never know what actually happened. However, we know Maguire the person. It just doesn’t seem like something he’d do, and he’d be the last footballer I’d expect to hear the words ‘D you know who I am?’ from.
For now, it’s about fighting his corner. It’s certainly not a good look for a captain of the biggest club in the world. But, let’s hope for a more positive outcome for Maguire following his appeal.
