March 8 – A 44-year-old Manchester United fan is being treated in hospital after being stabbed in Paris following the club’s dramatic Champions League win over Paris St-Germain on Wednesday night.
The fan has undergone emergency surgery after being stabbed in the chest.
“We are in touch with the French authorities following an incident involving a British man in Paris on 6 March and stand ready to offer assistance if required,” the Foreign Office said in a statement.
According to Sky, he was stabbed in the chest by a taxi driver who became angry at his and his friends’ post-match celebrations. The group of four was reportedly travelling back to central Paris from Parc de Princes when the taxi driver ordered them to leave the vehicle.
Sky reported that he pulled out a knife and threatened a female member of the group. When the victim tried to intervene, it said, he was stabbed in the chest with a “large blade”.
French police have apparently arrested an unnamed suspect.
