Jose Mourinho In Airport Stabbing Scare
A bodyguard for football manager Jose Mourinho is believed to have been stabbed protecting the Real Madrid and former Inter Milan boss as he signed autographs.
The minder was injured by a sharp object during an incident at A Coruna airport in northwest Spain.
The security staff believe the assailant’s intended target was 48-year-old Mourinho, according to Spanish reports.
The injured bodyguard was treated for a 4cm wound.
The football boss, initially unaware, was later told of the attack which occurred last week.
Newspaper El Periodico said: “Mourinho stopped to sign autographs in arrivals, where a large number of Madrid fans were waiting for the team.
“The bodyguard was near the manager and noticed he had been stabbed in the armpit.
“Mourinho was very worried by the incident.”
Investigators have scoured CCTV footage and subsequently identified a tall man wanted in connection with the attack.
:: Italian police uncovered a plot by a gang to possibly snatch Mourinho and his family in Como when he was the coach of Inter Milan.
