So soon after I was celebrating the end of the football season comes more news which just backs up the already bottom-dwelling opinion I have of the ‘sport’.
Greater Manchester Police have today announced that one of their officers has been blinded by some mindless thug after the recent Manchester Deby match a few weeks ago. The 24-year-old officer was dealing with a disturbance outside the ground between rival fans when one of them threw an object at hm, hitting him in the eye. The officer has partial blindnessĂ‚Â & does not yet know whether this will be permanent.
Supt Jim Liggett said: “The officer was simply doing his job, trying to ensure the match passed off safely and enjoyably for fans, when some mindless thug threw something at him.
“He may now be permanently blind in one eye as a result and, sadly, this incident demonstrates what can happen when objects are thrown indiscriminately and the dangers faced by police officers every single day. I would like to hear from anyone who knows the person in the image as he may have vital information about who may be responsible.”
They have issued the following photograph of a person they wish to speak to in relation to the incident.
