Spokesman Petros Vassilakis added: “All of the three were arrested but during the effort to do so, the other two, including the football player, got violent also.

“They threw down at least two policemen, hit them with their fists and kicked them.

“I can’t tell you what they were telling us. All English swear words against the authorities and against the work of the police.”

United issued a statement on Friday morning which read: “The club is aware of an alleged incident involving Harry Maguire in Mykonos last night.

“Contact has been made with Harry and he is fully co-operating with the Greek authorities. At this time we will be making no further comment.”

Manchester United Dazed by Sevilla as De Jong and Suso Lead Comeback

MANCHESTER UNITED have been dazed by Sevilla who have fought back after Bruno Fernandes’ early penalty.

The Portuguese’s early strike in Cologne came from United’s 22nd penalty of the season.

Manchester United’s remarkable run of penalties continued when Bruno Fernandes converted from the spot in their Europa League semi-final against Sevilla in Cologne on Sunday.

However, goals from Suso and De Jong gave the Spaniards the edge in the Europa League semi-final.

United were utterly dominant at the start of the second half, but some brilliant defending and some outstanding saves from Bounou kept them at bay, before a lapse in concentration from Wan-Bissaka and Lindelof at the back allowed substitute De Jong to prod Navas’ right-wing cross home from close range!

Ultimately, however, the penalty from Fernandes wasn’t enough on the night as Sevilla turned around the early deficit to advance past United with a 2-1 win.

It finishes 2-1 to Sevilla, who are into the Europa League final!

Xavi Agrees to Replace Quique Setien as New Manager of the Club for £5.4 Million Deal

Xavi is set to become Barcelona manager from the beginning of next season, with a report in Spain claiming he’s already agreed to take over from Quique Setien.

Things at Barcelona are not in a good place right now, having recently lost top spot in La Liga to their rivals Real Madrid, and on Thursday night it was reported that Lionel Messi was ready to leave the club after next season.

However, the club may already be taking steps to try and keep the forward, according to Mundo Deportivo journalist Francesc Aguilar, the Barcelona icon ‘Xavi’ has agreed to take over the club next season.

The tweets from Aguilar say the former Barca midfielder doesn’t want to take over until after the Champions League in August but there is an agreement in principle.

“In the agreement between Barça and Xavi to train the Barça club from next season, the calls of several important members of the squad would have had great weight, asking Xavi to take the step, who had his full support.” Aguilar tweeted.

Quique Setién, is a Spanish professional football manager and former player who is the manager of La Liga club Barcelona. As a player, he played in the central midfield position.

Setien, 61, has been under intense pressure since replacing Ernesto Valverde in January, and there are speculations that the club’s board have already decided to sack him in order to pave the way for Xavi. 

According to Mundo Deportivo, a “firm agreement” has been finalized and it would see Barcelona pay Xavi, 40, a bumper £5.4million per year. He is expected to take up the reins at the end of the season.   

Part of the reports yesterday about Messi’s potential departure centered on the lack of a successful project on the pitch and some claimed the Argentine wanted either Xavi or Ronald Koeman as the next manager.

Seeing his former teammate, and the man who helped assist him on a lot of occasions, become the new boss could help persuade the club’s all time top scorer to stay beyond next summer.

Nigerian Striker, Odion Ighalo’s future at Manchester United is Shaky

The Nigerian Striker, Odion Ighalo’s future at Manchester United is Shaky as Shanghai Shenhua has ordered Ighalo’s return to training next week Monday.

The parent Chinese club, Shanghai Shenhua where ighalo belongs has ordered him to return for full training with the club at the end of this month, when his loan deal with Manchester United expires.

Ighalo joined Manchester United on the last day of January, securing a loan move till the end of the season, and United were desperate to keep a hold of him following his good performances for the club but the Coronavirus imposed football break has changed the landscape of things.

As it is now, unless Manchester United are willing to make full contract negotiations with Shanghai Shenhua, Ighalo will be forced to return to China for the start of the Chinese football league season.

Although Ighalo wanted to stay at Manchester United despite receiving a lower salary than what he is used to at Shanghai, Shanghai Shenhua have rejected United’s requests to keep Ighalo at Old Trafford for another three months.

According to Daily Mail UK, Shanghai have the final say and are determined to get Ighalo back, having offered the former Watford player a two-year contract extension until 2024 on improved terms of £400,000 a week.

United paid a £3m loan fee for Ighalo at the end of January and have also been contributing £130,000 to his weekly wages, even though they haven’t played in two-and-a-half months.

Having initially taken him on loan until May 31, they want to keep Ighalo until the end of August when the season is now expected to finish, but Shanghai have refused to budge in negotiations.
