Cristiano Ronaldo in mourning,
A day after the announcement of the death of his son at birth, Cristiano Ronaldo did not wish to participate in his team’s match last night. During the match, the opposing fans wished to have a thought for him.
It was one of the biggest games of the season for Cristiano Ronaldo, but he was definitely not fit to play last night. His club Manchester United was heading to Liverpool for one of the most historic derbies in English football.
A match expected every year by fans of both teams, but last night, the Portuguese star was missing, still reeling from the death of his son last Monday.
He and Georgina Rodriguez had been expecting twins for several months and unfortunately the little boy did not survive the delivery, unlike their little girl, who is doing well.
A terrible news that has saddened the relatives of Cristiano Ronaldo as well as the stars of the whole world. The confrontation against Liverpool came far too early and the 37-year-old striker had to forfeit, which happens to him quite rarely.
“Family is more important than anything and Ronaldo is supporting his loved ones in this extremely difficult time.
As a result, we can confirm that he will not take part in the match against Liverpool at Anfield on Tuesday night,” Manchester United said on their Twitter account.
