Speaking to BBC Sport's Dan Roan, he said: "It was horrible it's not something I ever want to do again I don't wish it on anyone.

"It's the first time I had ever been inside a prison

"I regret putting the fans and club through this.

"I think it could have happened anywhere - I love Greece."

An emotional Maguire continued: "These two men approached my little sister and they I asked her where she was from.

"My fiance saw my little sisters eyes go into the back of her head. She ran over she was fainting in and out of consciousness."

"And then they just started hitting us. He was hitting me in the leg saying no more football, your career is over, you won't play again.

"At this point I thought there is no chance these are police - I don't know who they are - so I tried to run away I was in that much of a panic. Fear. I was scared for my life."

When asked if he bribed the police, the £80 million man replied: "No, as soon as I've seen that statement... it is just ridiculous.

"It has been a massive privilege to play for the club never mind to be a captain. Obviously it's not my decision to make.

"I hope the retrial will give us more time to prepare, gather evidence, allow witnesses into the court. I am really confident that the truth will come out."

The 27-year-old is set to have a full retrial after being granted an appeal against his convictions for assault and attempted bribery.

He was named the club's permanent captain in January after the departure of Ashley Young to Inter Milan.

But he has been dropped from Gareth Southgate's England squad for Nations League games against Iceland and Denmark next month.

Speaking about the defender, the England boss said: "Harry regrets the fact he has brought that sort of focus and attention to the team - he apologised for that - but also has his own side of the story.

"In these instances, I think you can only make decisions on facts that you're aware of. Clearly if facts change further down the line or information changes, then I have to review that decision."
