Manchester United are getting set to hold talks with Harry Maguire overvhis role as the captain of the team.
FrujuSports had reported that the defender was removed from England squad after being given a three-year suspended prison sentence for aggravated assault, resisting arrest and bribery of police in Mykonos.
According to Sky Sports reporter James Cooper, Maguire’s conviction “gives him and Manchester United plenty of time to work out what they want to do in terms of the captaincy.”
“What I’m told right now is there is no suggestion that Harry Maguire will have the captaincy taken from him.” Cooper continued.
“Manchester United have been as supportive as any club could possibly be in these circumstances.
“There will be conversations ongoing and this matter certainly isn’t closed.
“A lot of it depends on face-to-face chats between Harry Maguire, Manchester United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ed Woodward. Then, perhaps a decision will be made.”
Meanwhile, Maguire said he would be appealing against his conviction.
