The England defender’s dad was caught up in the chaotic scenes inside the stadium on Sunday night and left struggling to breathe. Maguire described what happened as “scary” and said his family would be “more aware” when attending games in future.
The 28-year-old told The Sun: “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.
He said: “Wembley is an amazing place. It has been an amazing home and the fans and the way they have acted have been unbelievable, apart from the odd few in a final. We need to learn and we will – and it would be an amazing place to hold the World Cup.”
