Following Tuesday’s verdict, Maguire said he tasked his legal team “with immediate effect to notify the courts that we will appeal.”

“I remain strong and confident of our innocence in this matter – if anything, myself, my family and my friends are the victims.”

“After speaking to Manchester United and the player, I made this decision in the best interests of all parties and considering the impact on our preparations for next week. ”

Manchester United said in a statement: “Harry Maguire has pleaded not guilty to all misdemeanor charges against him and he continues to firmly assert his innocence.

“It should be noted that the prosecution confirmed the charges and provided their evidence late on the eve of the trial, which gave the defense team minimal time to digest and prepare. A request to adjourn the case was subsequently rejected.

“Based on this, along with the substantial body of evidence refuting the charges, Harry Maguire’s legal team will now appeal the verdict, to allow for a full and fair hearing at a later date.
