How would you describe the character and temperament of Sophie’s father?


Answer – 

Sophie’s father is a plump and aggressive person. Sophie fears his anger. He doesn’t believe in the wild stories of his daughter but as a caring father, he reminds her not to make such stories as this could lead her to trouble. He is a football fan because he visits the football ground with his kids, every Saturday, to watch his favorite team ‘United’ play the match. He also wishes Danny Casey to become like Finney and enjoys the winning of his team by visiting the pub.
