Harry Maguire revealed that his father was suspected to have broken his ribs during the Euro 2020 final at Wembley. A number of ticketless fans breached the security at Wembley and caused chaos. The Manchester United defender’s dad was caught in the chaos and was struggling to breathe at a point. Maguire said that the scenes witnessed were scary and his family would be wary of attending games in the future.
“My dad was in the stampede. I have not spoken with him too much but I am pleased my kids didn’t go to the game.” Harry Maguire said after his father was caught in the stampede. “It was scary – he said he was scared and I don’t want anyone to experience that at a football match. I have seen a lot of videos and have spoken to dad and my family. It was my dad and agent who suffered the most. He was struggling with his breathing afterward because of his ribs, but he’s not one to make a big fuss – he got on with it.”
“I hope we can learn from this and make sure it doesn’t happen again. Dad will always support me and go to the games but he will be a little bit more aware of everything going on around. We should all be more aware and learn from it.” he added. “Things could have been a lot worse but we have to make sure it does not happen again.”
