Ronaldo will 'never forget' Anfield crowd reaction after son's death

Cristiano Ronaldo has thanked the Anfield crowd for their show of compassion following the death of his newborn son.

A minute’s applause was held during Tuesday’s game between Liverpool and Manchester United.

Fans of both teams showed solidarity with the player and applauded in the seventh minute – the same as the Portuguese star’s number.

Some United fans sang Ronaldo’s name and held up his shirt, while Liverpool fans sang You’ll Never Walk Along. Their manager Jurgen Klopp also applauded.


The footballer, 37, said on Instagram: “One world… One sport… One global family… Thanks, Anfield.

“Me and my family will never forget this moment of respect and compassion.”

He added three hands-praying emojis alongside a video of the crowd’s touching gesture.
