Bernard Sheridan,who amazingly turned 104-years-old this week, first watched his beloved Liverpool play all the way back in 1923 and was overjoyed to receive a signed letter from Klopp – as well as a personalised shirt, tickets to this weekend’s game against Crystal Palace and a Liverpool-themed birthday cake.
According to the Liverpool Echo, Klopp’s letter read: “Dear Bernard, I would like to personally wish you a very happy 104th birthday.
“I hope you enjoy celebrating with your family and friends. Thank you for your continued support of Liverpool Football Club.
“You’ll Never Walk Alone.”
And giving his take on the fuss, Brendan added: “I’ve been a proud Liverpool supporter since I was a boy and have supported the club through thick and thin, so I am absolutely thrilled to be off to the match on Saturday.
“Obviously the icing on the cake will be when we beat Crystal Palace!”
He’s seen the club win all five of their European Cups, as well as 15 of their 18 English League titles, but this weekend’s match against Palace will probably be the proudest Bernard and his family have ever been whilst watching the Reds.
Should more football clubs make more of an effort to put a personal touch on their bond with supporters?
