Jurgen Klopp sends heartwarming message to striker after history-making promotion

(CNN)After helping secure his side's historic promotion to the second tier of English football, Adebayo Akinfenwa said he only wanted to celebrate with one person -- Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

The striker came on in the second half of Wycombe Wanderers' 2-1 victory over Oxford United in the League One play-off final, a result which means Wycombe will be playing in the Championship next season for the first time in the club's history.
And in the post-match interview, Liverpool fan Akinfenwa asked Klopp "to hit him up on WhatsApp" so that they could "celebrate together." The German duly obliged.
