Harry Wilson Reveals the Text Jurgen Klopp Sent Him After Wonder Goal Against Man Utd

Harry Wilson has revealed the text message sent to him by Jurgen Klopp after the Liverpool loanee’s stunning free-kick against Manchester United in the EFL Cup for Derby.

The 21-year-old is with Frank Lampard’s Championship side for the season and has already won plaudits for some of his performances in the second-tier.

However, he really caught the eye last month by scoring an absolutely brilliant set-piece against the Red Devils at Old Trafford, which helped the Rams to a famous victory after a 2-2 draw and a penalty shoot-out.

Speaking via the Express, Wales international Wilson revealed Klopp’s message was short and sweet, but definitely showed the German is keeping tabs on the impressive youngster.

He said: “Jurgen Klopp messaged me after the United game. He just said: ‘fantastic free-kick, really great football’.

“It’s great to hear from the manager whose team you want to be in in the future.

“I have been practising a bit and if I can hit one half as good as the other night I will be happy. I think the Liverpool fans enjoyed it.”

What do you think of Wilson’s prospects of becoming a first-team Liverpool player next season? Is he good enough to challenge some of the top stars currently plying their trade at Anfield?

What do you think?
