Maguire reveals the damage caused by fans to his father at Euro 2020 final

Harry Maguire has said that his father Alan suffered suspected broken ribs as a result of ticketless fans breaking through security and entering Wembley on Sunday evening for the Euro 2020 final.

His father was trampled on after fans broke through entrance gates at the stadium – including one of the disabled entrances on the south east side of the ground.

The Metropolitan Police reported on Monday that they had made 53 arrests at Wembley in connection with the Euro 2020 final, which was held between Italy and England.

Wembley officials confirmed that a “small group” of people had breached security and got into the stadium before the match kicked off.

Footage of the incident was uploaded to social media, which showed hundreds of fans charging up a set of steps towards the entrances.

UEFA have began disciplinary proceedings into “events involving supporters which occurred inside and around the stadium“.

The FA have also been hit by four charges, including invasion of the field of play, throwing of objects, disturbances during the national anthem and the lighting of a firework by supporters.

Maguire speaks out on Wembley incident

Speaking to The Sun, Maguire said that his father was “scared” after the incident and was struggling to breathe.

He explained: “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 [Kenneth Shepherd] that suffered the most. He was struggling with his breathing afterwards because of his ribs, but he’s not one to make a big fuss.

“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 later added: “Things could have been a lot worse but we have to make sure it doesn’t happen again.”
