Jose Mourinho ‘escapes knife attack’ in Spanish airport
Read Madrid manager avoids being stabbed while signing autographs, according to reports in Spain
A man armed with a dagger tried to stab Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho as he signed autographs in a Spanish airport, according to reports.
Mourinho is said to have narrowly avoided being injured shortly after arriving at La Coruña airport last Friday but a member of the club’s security staff is reported to have received a 4cm stab wound in the incident.
The Cadena Ser news channel says the security staff member did not realise he had been stabbed until he was on the team bus and it is unclear if Mourinho was aware of the attack at the time.
Real Madrid officials had sought to keep the incident quiet after Cadena Ser quoted a club source who revealed security will be stepped up for Real’s game with Racing Santander this weekend.
