Anfield has earned the label of being one of the best stands in Europe with gestures such as the one that took place on Tuesday. At the start of the game, with the score at 1-0, Cristiano Ronaldo received a standing ovation.
The Portuguese announced on Monday that, during the birth of his twins, one of his sons unfortunately lost his life. As a result, he was ruled out of Tuesday's game against Liverpool.
The Anfield stand, the entire stand, gave a standing ovation to Cristiano Ronaldo, who was to be their opponent on Tuesday, to dedicate a few affectionate minutes to the Portuguese player.
They also sang 'You'll never walk alone' in honour of the former Real Madrid player and current Manchester United player to express their condolences.
Ronaldo missed the match to be with his family. Ronaldo and his partner Georgina Rodriguez had revealed in a social media post last October that the couple was expecting twins.
"Family is more important than everything and Ronaldo is supporting his loved ones at this immensely difficult time," United said in a statement earlier in the day.
"As such, we can confirm that he will not feature in the match against Liverpool at Anfield on Tuesday evening and we underline the family's request for privacy."
