Harry Maguire’s father suffers suspected broken ribs at Wembley Euro 2020 final

Harry Maguire has revealed that his father was left with suspected broken ribs by those who had entered Wembley without a ticket at the Euro 2020 final.

Violent scenes inside the stadium and around its concourse led to breaches of security as the England defender’s dad was left struggling to breath on Sunday night.

When speaking in an interview with The Sun, Maguire is quoted by Sky Sports, labelled the incident as “scary”, stating that his family will be “more aware” when attending matches moving forward.

“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.

“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 afterwards 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.”

“Things could have been a lot worse but we have to make sure it does not happen again.”

UEFA announced on Tuesday that a disciplinary investigation has been opened into the disturbing events at the Euro 2020 final at Wembley.
