Harry Maguire will remain Manchester United captain, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed.
The 27 year old defender was charged with a suspended prison sentence on the Greek island of Syros after being found guilty of aggravated assault, resisting arrest and repeated attempts of bribery.
He maintains his innocence and has appealed against the decision, which nullifies the conviction.
“He is going to be our captain,” Solskjaer told MUTV.
“He’s handled it really well and, of course, I’ll be here to support him.
“We’ll just leave Harry and his people and the process to run. For me, he is a top, an absolute top human being and has always been a positive guy with the right values. So I really hope we can see Harry performing at his best.”
