Adam leads tributes to Brad Jones following Reds win

Liverpool’s win against Chelsea on Sunday was dedicated to goalkeeper Brad Jones, whose son Luca died after an 18 month battle with leukaemia, The Sydney Morning Herald reports.

Jones quit the Australian national side’s training camp on the eve of the World Cup 2010 to be by the side of his son after learning the seriousness of his injury. Five year old Luca died on Friday and the Reds’ crucial victory on Sunday was marked as one for their goalkeeper with the players and staff wearing black armbands in tribute. Reds manager Kenny Dalglish spoke of the death of his goalkeeper’s boy, saying that football becomes irrelevant when a five year old child dies. Scottish midfielder Charlie Adam dedicated the win to Jones following the game.

Adam said: ‘I’d like to dedicate the win to Brad Jones who had a difficult week losing his son. That one was for you big man and we are all thinking about you’.
