Harry Maguire Trial LIVE

The trial of Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has begun on the Greek island of Syros.

He is represented by Alexis Anagnostakis, one of Greece's top human rights lawyers.

He is not obliged to be in attendance.

Maguire has already pleaded not guilty.

Police say a file has been opened which includes accusations of "violence against officials, disobedience, bodily harm, insult and attempted bribery of an official".

Greek police said in a statement on Friday that officers had tried to break up an altercation between two groups outside a bar and that the three foreigners had then verbally abused and assaulted one of the officers.

The statement claimed that after arriving at Mykonos police station, the three arrested individuals then "strongly resisted, pushing and hitting three police officers" and that "one of the detainees tried to offer money so that the trial against them would not be completed".

I can't actually belive how quickly this has all happened. It would have taken a year and a half over here.

Souness saying he should be sacked and never play in England again.

Seems a bit harsh, given that pogba wasn't even involved.

I know nothing about the greek legal system, but given that the trial occurred within 48 hours, lasted less than a day, and seemed to involve the defence being given the charge sheet 2 hours before the trial (and then being denied a delay), it's difficult to avoid thinking that it is all the teensiest bit dodgy.

That's the point - he should have been involved.

Looks very dodgy. Ben Stokes is thankfully his brawl was in the UK.

Sounds like he was being tried by UEFA.

Crime: Offering to pay money.
Punishment: Being asked to pay money.

I wish our courts would deal with criminals as quickly.
