It was a great moment of respect when Anfield, just before Liverpool’s clash against Crystal Palace, observed a minute’s silence in solidarity with victims of last week’s ghastly Barcelona attacks.
Thousands of spectators kept rivalries aside and joined the two teams in uniting under a common message of peace by paying their respects to the victims of the attack.
In fact, a small detail that largely went unnoticed from Saturday’s tribute was the fact that even the pitchside advertising boards at Anfield went dark and did not flash any messages during those few seconds.
Football clubs all over the world similarly held a minute’s silence before matches this weekend. FC Barcelona players even played their entire match against Real Betis by printing the name of the city instead of their own names on the back of their kits.
