Newcastle put Sunderland rivalry to one side: ‘There’s only one Bradley Lowery!’

Newcastle United fans paid tribute to Bradley Lowery.

Bradley Lowery’s passing affected the entire world of football. The brave 6-year-old, Defoe’s ‘best friend’ and Sunderland fan, was remembered by Newcastle supporters, who forgot their rivalry with the team loved by Bradley.

Thousands of people said goodbye to Bradley Lowery dressed in superhero costumes or in an array of football strips. During the emotional ceremony, even his friend Defoe could not hold back the tears.

Bradley will always have a place in the hearts of football fans all around the globe. So much is the case, that the lifelong Sunderland supporter was honoured in a pre-season Newcastle game. Magpies fans forgot about their personal feud with the Black Cats to send one last goodbye to the boy who fought till the bitter end.

‘There’s only one Bradley Lowery!’ the Newcastle United crowd sang, as they paid tribute to the fighter who continues to unite the world of football.
