The English international Harry Maguire revealed this Wednesday that his father could have two broken ribs after being run over by the crowd that forced their way into the stadium of Wembley on the Final of the Eurocup.
Alan Maguire, 56, was involved in the chaotic scenes that took place in the London stadium, which left him with “trouble breathing”, according to the central defender of the English national team and the Manchester United, one of the most prominent in the European tournament, despite the defeat in the Final against Italy.
After being rammed, the father of the soccer player was trampled by the “stampede” of people who forced their entry into the stadium without having localities, when he was going next to the defense agent, Kenneth Shepherd, towards the designated area on a slipway for the relatives of the english players.
“It was not a good experience, it left him touched. But he was lucky because in all the others matches to whom he has gone (in the Eurocup) was carrying my nephew or one of my daughters on his shoulders, “he declared Maguire to the newspaper ‘The Sun’, and specified that his two little girls did not go to the Final.
The images of these incidents, as well as the destruction and attacks perpetrated by ‘hooligans’ english, have gone around the world, which has overshadowed the good role of the ‘Three Lions’ in the european appointment.
“I have seen many videos and I have spoken with my dad and my family. Those who had the worst time were my father and my agent. I wish we could learn of this and ensure that it does not happen again, “he added Maguire.
