Manchester City fans feared dead after being attacked by Club Brugge fans.
A 63-year-old Manchester City fan is reportedly fighting for his life in hospital after being attacked following their victory over Club Brugge on Tuesday night.
Belgian publication HLN claims the fan from Belgium, named Guido, was making his way home when he stopped at the service station.
He was reportedly approached by a rival supporter and had his scarf pulled from his neck. His son is quoted as saying Guido was “left for dead” after a “heavy blow to the head”, with the man now reportedly fighting for his life.
“After the game, we stopped at the parking lot along the E40 in Drongen. While we were already driving on, my dad was still waiting outside for his two friends. There, a Club Brugge supporter approached him and pulled his scarf from around his neck.
“When my dad asked for his scarf back, he received a heavy blow to the head, after which the perpetrators fled and left my dad for dead,” he said.
