A Partially Blind Liverpool Fan Receives Accolades For Sportsmanship

Oct 27, 2021

It was an emotional moment for many fans of Liverpool Football Club as they watch Mike Kearney receive accolades for sportsmanship after being seen in a  viral video celebrating Mohammed Salah's goal in the Champions League against Napoli in 2018-19. 

No doubt about it, Kearney, though blind, is a die-hard fan of the club and as such deserves the spotlight on his love captured in the video. 

Kearney has 'watched' every game played at Anfield Stadium, the Red's home turf from the stands for more than half of a decade without missing out on any and he also managed to attend a few of Reds' away games while his cousin narrates the match action to him in real-time.

Immediately the video went viral it receives emotional responses from football fans globally, but It didn't take Mo Salah that long before he invites Mike Kearney and his cousin Stephen Garcia to the Melwood training facility where the Egyptian star presented to Mike a signed shirt with the message: "To Michael, your support is an inspiration." Mike also met the Reds manager Jurgen Klopp, and several first-team players.
