Harry Maguire’s dad suffering suspected broken ribs in Wembley ‘stampede’
Harry Maguire has revealed his father suffered suspected broken ribs after getting caught up in the “stampede” before Sunday’s Euro 2020 final.
Maguire said his dad was “scared” as he made his way into the game.
“It shook him up,” Maguire said, adding that his father was “struggling with his breathing and his ribs” after the match at Wembley.
Speaking to The Sun, Harry said his dad Alan Maguire, 56, was “involved in the stampede” and “did suffer a couple of injuries.”
The football star said he was glad his children did not go to the match because his father has “normally got one of them on his shoulders”.
He said he was “thankful” that was not the case on Sunday because it “could have been a really serious moment”.
Speaking on the events, he said the whole episode was “scary and disappointing.”
Alan Maguire did not seek medical attention because he is “not one to make a big fuss” and “got on with it” despite “struggling with his ribs”, his son said.
Reflecting on the incident, Maguire said he did not want “anyone to experience that going to watch the football, especially a major final”.
“I hope we can look back and just make sure it doesn’t happen again,” he added.
