7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Gy­orgy Gar­ics is de­ter­mined to help Aus­tria ex­cel at Euro 2016 af­ter his fa­ther passed away on the eve of the tour­na­ment. The de­fender’s fa­ther, Gy­orgy Gar­ics Sr, passed away on Thurs­day morn­ing af­ter a 10-month bat­tle with can­cer, but his son chose to stay with the rest of the Aus­tria squad. Now he hopes to make his late fa­ther proud. “I asked him whether I should stay with him or go, but he thought that I should def­i­nitely go,” said Gar­ics Jr. “Of course I want to re­spect his fi­nal wish. “I would like to give him a beau­ti­ful send-off. Papa would have loved to see me at the Euros, but he would have been the first to be an­gry if I left the tour­na­ment. “So I’m go­ing to do ev­ery­thing I can to make him even prouder as foot­ball was his life.”
