Liverpool supporters have united around a struggling Covid-19 doctor after an earthquake in Croatia.
As a series of strong aftershocks from a 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck on December 30, the country’s capital of Zagreb saw buildings shake and collapse.
The town of Petrinja, which is close to the capital, was left with many homes destroyed, with five dead and 20 wounded.
And one of them belonged to a young supporter of the Reds, with pictures of him appearing on Croatian news channels.
The radiologist, who worked in Zagreb with Covid-19 patients, was seen holding the “This is Anfield” sign above the Liverpool soil tunnel.
It was the only thing the young man wanted to get out of his flat before it was struck by the earthquake, reports said.
On Reddit, where the Anfield faithful agreed to take action, these photos were soon shared.
‘In this case, only some publicity from the club would probably mean a lot to him,’ one supporter said.
And another added:’ In cases like this, I know it’s hard for the club to send money because it sets a precedent, but it would be good to get the attention of players to send him some signed shirts/memorabilia that he can choose to keep as a nice item or sell them for funds if necessary.’
Gerry Marsden played the popular Liverpool song in the band Gerry and the Pacemakers, first heard on the floor in the 1960s.
But fans were left in disbelief when the band’s lead singer passed away at 78 years of age after an illness last week.
And with Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney leading them, tributes poured in from around the world to the music icon.
