Newcastle fan stabbed in shocking attack & Incident Detail
A Newcastle United fan suffered stab wounds after being attacked in Milan last night ahead of the Toon Army’s first Champions League match in 20 years.
58-year-old Eddie McKay, who planned to attend the match with his son and a friend, was taken to the hospital, but his condition was stated to be stable.
In graphic images published on social media, it can be seen that the bloody supporter, who was attacked by a group of seven to eight people around midnight, was treated by paramedics.
In a statement, Newcastle said: “We are deeply concerned by reports that a supporter was seriously assaulted in Milan on Monday evening. We are in contact with local authorities to understand the situation. Our thoughts are with the supporter and his family and we hope for a full and speedy recovery.”
More than 4,000 fans made the journey from North-East England despite complaints that prices were inflated, with hotel prices more than doubling and flights going for astronomical prices.
Meanwhile, Newcastle could be reprimanded by UEFA after arriving late against Milan last night. Clubs are required to be present for media duties between noon and 8 pm in the city where the match will be played, but the team’s flight was postponed due to bad weather conditions in the region.
Eddie Howe and new former Milan midfielder Sandro Tonali held a press conference after deadline day but due to the circumstances the governing body is only expected to issue a warning to the club.
Manager Howe said: “It’s been a long day, we started early and finished late. I think there was a weather problem. We sat on the podium, it’s nothing out of the ordinary and it can happen from time to time. It was a day where we got our game plan right. It was very intense. “It was four.” “We are looking forward to it.”
“It’s a little later than we wanted for the players. We want to do as much as we can. We want to be very competitive and express ourselves really well. “We will show our style of play and impose ourselves.”
Tonali, 23, returns to Milan just three months after the Geordies bought him from his hometown club for £55 million.
