Liverpool fans around the world have rallied behind the daughter of missing chief steward and passionate Kopite, Andrew Nari, after she posted a heartfelt message about her father on Twitter.
Andrew was one of 239 people on board Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 when the aircraft, heading from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, went missing on March 8. The search is ongoing.
On Sunday, during Liverpool's 3-0 victory over Manchester United, his daughter Maira made the following poignant post on her Twitter account:
Daddy, Liverpool is winning the game. Come home, so you can watch the game! You never miss watching the game. It's your very first time. :')— . (@Gorgxous_) March 16, 2014
Her Tweet was met with a flurry of touching replies in the days that followed, as friends and strangers alike took the time to offer her hope and encouragement.
On Tuesday evening, after Maira's message was shared by Liverpool FC's official Twitter and Facebook accounts, fans from all corners of the globe sent their own moving messages of support.
As did the football club itself, who posted the following Tweet directly to Maira:
Below is just a handful of the hundreds of messages which have been posted on Liverpool's official Facebook page by fans of all clubs in her support.
