Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed Harry Maguire will continue as the club’s captain for the new season.
Maguire was handed a suspended 21-month sentence last month, having been found guilty of assaulting a police officer, swearing, resisting arrest and bribery during an incident in Mykonos.
He has denied the offences and has launched an appeal. The appeal nullifies the verdict and means Maguire has no criminal record ahead of a full retrial.
“He’s handled it really well and, of course, I’ll be here to support him,” Solskjaer told the official United website.
“He is going to be our captain. We’ll just leave Harry and his people and the process to run.”
