Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo signed against Arsenal in the UAE a few days after announcing the tragic death of his child on Saturday afternoon.
Cristiano Ronaldo paid tribute to his baby boy after he beat Manchester United 3-1 from Arsenal on Saturday afternoon.
The 37-year-old has played his first Premier League game since announcing the tragic death of his child on Monday night. Ronaldo pointed to the sky after signing in the UAE and then shared that photo with his love heart.
United also thanked Arsenal after their fans applauded Ronaldo for his solidarity in the seventh minute. The Portuguese striker is wearing the No. 7 jersey for the club and the country. Liverpool supporters did the same in Anfield on Tuesday evening.
“It’s a high-profile act by applauding Cristiano in the seventh minute from Arsenal supporters,” a United Nations official tweeted.
Ronaldo thanked the Liverpool fans for their support and will undoubtedly be grateful to Arsenal for their actions. “One world … one sport … one global family … thank you Anfield. My family and I will never forget this moment of respect and compassion,” he wrote.
Ronaldo and his 28-year-old wife, Georgina Rodriguez, said they were expecting twins in October. Coupler survived the baby’s birth. “We are saddened by the death of our child,” they wrote earlier in the week.
“It simply came to our notice then.
“We are all very saddened by this loss and we ask for the inviolability of privacy in this difficult time. Our child, you are our angel. We will always love you.”
Millions of people mourned. “It’s a pain in the ass. It’s Cristiano, who is giving you and your family life and strength right now,” he wrote on his Instagram account. “It simply came to our notice then.
Ronaldo and Georgina brought their baby girls home earlier this week. “The house is a sweet home,” they wrote on Instagram. “Gio and our little girl were finally with us. Thank you all for all the kind words and gestures.
“Your support is very important and we all feel the love and respect for our family. Now is the time to be thankful for the life we have welcomed in this world.”
Ronaldo’s goal was the 100th in the Premier League on Saturday, the 22nd since joining Juventus from United last summer. As a result, the Red Devils play more games, ranking sixth in the table with six points behind Arsenal.
In the seventh, West Ham and in the eighth place will be able to jump from United if they win their game against the Wolves. United will be relegated to the Europa League if they take fifth or sixth place, while they will be relegated to the Europa League next season.
