Harry Arter provokes admiration for playing for Bournemouth v Man United [Tweets]

The football world was quick to praise the attitude of midfielder Harry Arter after playing in Bournemouth’s 2-1 victory over Man United on Saturday.

The Republic of Ireland international lined up for the Cherries at the Vitality Stadium, despite he and his partner losing their baby at birth earlier in the week.

Bournemouth announced the news ahead of the game and said their players would be wearing black armbands in tribute.

Arter then went on to put in a fine performance as Eddie Howe’s men followed up a win at champions Chelsea with success against Louis Van Gaal’s injury hit side.

The 25-year-old came off towards the end of the game and was shown in an emotional embrace with Howe as the full-time whistle blew.

After hearing of the news, the football world took to Twitter to show their respect towards the Bournemouth midfielder.

Take a look at Harry Arter’s Instagram message below.
