Both sets of supporters gave the midfielder a standing ovation in the 19th minute of the match, a tribute linked with the midfielder’s shirt number.

Blatter took to Twitter to express his well wishes.

“Very sad to hear about Stiliyan Petrov’s illness. Wish him strength in his fight to win this battle.”
