Harry Maguire has revealed that his 65-year-old dad had his ‘ribs broken’ during the Wembley Stadium stampede. 

The Manchester United defender told The Sun that his father, Alan, got caught up in the chaos prior to the kick-off when ticketless supporters charged the ground.

He described the incident as ‘scary’ and said his dad was left ‘struggling with his breathing’.

He told the publication: “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.

“I hope we can learn from this and make sure it doesn’t happen again.”

The footballer went on to call out the fans who acted ‘totally wrong’ and said he hopes people will ‘learn from it’.

He added: “My dad’s a big fan – he got on with it.

“He was struggling with his breathing afterward because of his ribs, but he’s not one to make a big fuss.

“The experience at Wembley is always amazing, filled with great people and great fans normally. But this time was obviously the final and everyone got overwhelmed and the way some people acted was totally wrong.

“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.”
