Cristiano Ronaldo: Rival fans unite in support of Ronaldo and his family

In a thrilling seventh minute, which Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp described as “match moment”, Liverpool fans sang their club anthem “You’ll Never Walk Alone”, while United fans they applauded. Ronaldo’s United jersey number is seven.

A United jersey with the player’s name and number was also held away by visiting fans, as both sets of players entered the pitch wearing black headbands.

The Portugal superstar missed the English Premier League match, which Liverpool won 4-0 to move to the top of the table, as he is on compassionate leave.

He and his partner Georgina Rodriguez announced the death of their baby on Monday, saying it was the “greatest pain any parent can experience.”

Ronaldo and Rodriguez were expecting twins. In a statement on social media, the couple said the birth of their baby girl “gives us the strength to live this moment with a little hope and happiness.”

Speaking to reporters after the game, Klopp said: “Pretty sure if you ask anyone, my match moment, even when it was very important and a great result, what was the seventh minute our people showed pure class.

The whole stadium together showed pure class, at a time when obviously we all knew from yesterday, since I first heard about it, so many things in life are much more important than football.

“Obviously, we feel a lot for Cristiano and his family.”

Many messages of condolence have been published on social networks.

United wrote: “Your pain is our pain. I send love and strength to you and the family right now, Christian.”

Former Brazilian star and three-time World Cup winner Pele said, “My friend, I send you my prayers and condolences at this very difficult time. May God comfort your hearts and enlighten every step of the way.” .
