John Terry’s dad attacked in Upminster Station
THE dad of Chelsea skipper John Terry was attacked by football fans in Upminster Station last Saturday night (November 6).
Ted Terry, 56, suffered a serious head injury at the hands of Tottenham Hotspurs supporters, The Sun reported.
Mr Terry was taken to hospital after his head was smashed against a metal pole by yobs, the report said, one of whom had a Spurs scarf wrapped around his hand.
It is thought the attackers were returning from their team’s 4-2 defeat to Bolton.
“Ted suffered a nasty wound to the back of his head that required a lot of stitches,” a family friend told The Sun. “He is upset he was attacked by so-called football fans purely because his son plays for a rival team. John is also very shocked about what has happened.”
