Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Ruben Neves has revealed that he saw the birth of his child on the social network ‘FaceTime’ over the weekend.
It all happened after his club lost 1-0 against Crystal Palace on Saturday, where a goal by Eberechi Eze sealed all three points for Roy Hodgson’s men.
The 23-year-old has revealed he was returning from London when he received a phone call from his wife, Deborah, who was giving birth to their third child in Portugal.
Neves could not attend the birth due to the coronavirus pandemic and its apparent limitations, so he saw the emotional moment from his phone.
“Yes, I saw the birth of the baby on my phone when we were returning from Crystal Palace,” Neves initially told WolvesTV after the club’s 2-1 victory.
“It is not easy to be honest, it is really difficult. “It’s really hard not to be there for an amazing moment for my family.”
“Of course I wanted to be there, but this is the world we live in at the moment. “So we have to get used to it.”
“We have to do everything we can to solve things because we are in big trouble,” concluded the Portuguese. / Telegraphy /
