Liverpool Boss Brendan Rodgers Sends Personal Letter to Fan After Death of His Grandfather

Brendan Rodgers sent a heartfelt letter of condolences to a Liverpool supporter after the recent death of his grandfather.

The Anfield boss sent the letter last week with the recipient, Joe Nelson, then posting it online.

Soon enough the picture ended up on Reddit and fans of the club have been quick to praise the gesture from Rodgers.

In the letter, he wrote:

Dear Joe, I am sorry to be writing to you under these extremely sad circumstances.

On behalf of everyone at Liverpool Football Club, the directors, players and staff, I would like to offer our sincere condolences to you and your family following the loss of your granddad Roy.

As one of our supporters and a season ticket holder for many years, Roy is part of our LFC family and always will be.

Nothing we say will recompense your loss but I extend my deepest sympathies and I want you to know that all our thoughts are with you and your family at this sad time.

With sincere feelings, Brendan Rodgers. LFC Manager.

You’ll Never Walk Alone

It reinforces the respect Rodgers now has from the Liverpool fans and his willingness reach out to them.

Kop legend Bill Shankly was also a regular writer to supporters at difficult times in their life.

In the book, Red or Dead by David Peace, the managerial great consistently sent personal letters to those involved and supporting the club.
