PSV were informed this weekend that Mohamed Ihattaren’s father had passed away through illness. The fans and his team-mates attempted to comfort Ihattaren.
A minute’s silence
A minute’s silence was observed impeccably before the game and the Philips Stadion crowd clapped for Ihattaren in the 24th minute, referring to the No 24 shirt he wears for PSV, and unfolded a large banner saying ‘Mo, stay strong’. After the final whistle, the banner was handed to, among other players, Denzel Dumfries and Steven Bergwijn, who went to the camera to encourage Ihattaren.
