The star of Manchester City, Kalvin Phillips, has been candid about the impact his father’s incarceration has had on his life and career.

In the 2023 documentary Kalvin Phillips: The Road To City, which is available on Amazon Prime, the footballer—who has also played for Leeds—opened up about his upbringing.

Who is Kalvin Phillips’ dad?

Mark, the footballer’s father, has a history of being in and out of jail, according to information previously provided by Kalvin.

He is presently imprisoned in West Yorkshire at HM Prison Wealstun.

Triplets with two sisters, Kalvin was born.

Sadly, Lacreasha, one of the infant girls, passed away at the age of just a few months.

Why is Kalvin Phillips’ dad in jail?

Due to his violent and drug-related offenses, Mark has served time in prison.

He has been imprisoned for 12 years. He’s been in and out of my life since I was a young child, Kalvin said in a 2020 interview with The Times.

He has engaged in drugs, fighting, being in the wrong crowd, being in prison and out of prison, and anything else you can think of.

What did Kalvin Phillips say regarding his father?

In the Kalvin Phillips: The Road to City documentary on Prime, Kalvin speaks extensively about the impact his father’s condition has had on his life.

The athlete elucidated: “My motivation probably stems from the lack of a father figure there. I’ve always aimed to please my mother. Dad spent time in and out of jail. Because we didn’t see him all the time, it had an impact on our relationship. The worst part was that we knew he was going to be gone for a while when he left.”

He also admitted that he would frequently drive past the prison while practicing with Leeds even though he preferred to call rather than visit his father.

The Manchester City player remarked: “It was strange because I would think about him every time I drove past it. When I was younger, I was reluctant to bring up the subject, but these days it’s like, ‘Yeah, my dad’s in prison. Since he has been inside for so long, it is not a big deal.”

“I don’t want him to think he has nothing when he comes out, because obviously we’ve done so well and I’ve done so well,” Kalvin continued.

“I just want to try and have a better relationship with my dad so he doesn’t feel like he’s missed out,” the speaker said.

In addition, Kalvin said he does not condemn his father for the decisions he has made in life.

He said: “Obviously, he’s made some poor choices, but I don’t condemn him for them because I know about the difficult upbringing he had.”

At the conclusion of the film, which Kalvin says was made over the course of a year and was released in July 2023, he says his father’s sentence has been reduced to just two more years.

He said: “I know exactly what he wants to do when he gets out, and that’s come watch football. That’s one thing I can help him with.

I haven’t had him there for such a long time, so it will be nice.

Who is Kalvin Phillips’ mum?

Lindsay Crosby is Kalvin’s mother. She gave birth to a second daughter and a younger son after the triplets on December 2, 1995.

Lindsay worked a cash-and-carry and a pizza takeaway while she raised her kids.

The star’s mother discusses how she hid the truth about Mark’s incarcerations in Kalvin’s documentary.

“I tried to keep a lot of things from the kids because I didn’t want them to think this was okay,” she said.

“I used to say that he had left for work because I didn’t want them to believe that such behavior was typical.”
