Jurgen Klopp has responded to Adebayo Akinfenwa's request to "hit me up" by sending the striker a hilarious congratulatory video message following Wycombe's promotion to the Championship.
The Chairboys beat Oxford United 2-1 in the League One playoff final on Monday night and will play in the second tier of English football for the first time in their history next season.
The larger-than-life Akinfenwa, who is a big Liverpool fan, was released by Wimbledon four years ago and famously asked any watching managers to "hit me up on the WhatsApp and get me a job."
The 38-year-old was in much better spirits following the win against Oxford, and told Sky Sports at full-time: "Let me tell you something, the only person that can hit me up on WhatsApp this time is Klopp, so we can celebrate together. You get me? Oi!"
Akinfenwa then shared a video to his Twitter account in the early hours of Tuesday morning, in which he is seen still dressed in his full kit standing in a street.
The clearly delighted player shows to the camera a video message Klopp had sent, in which the Liverpool manager says: "Hello big man. Congratulations. I watched the game but I didn't see the post-match interviews but Hendo and the boys told me to get in contact with you on WhatsApp so here we go.
"Congratulations! I'm pretty sure your whole life you wanted to be at least a Championship player and now, finally, you are there. Well done. Great, great victory.
"Even in these strange times I hope you celebrate appropriately."
Akinfenwa then yells in delight: "Come on! Klopp you're a legend! We did it, I told you it would be up on WhatsApp, we celebrate together. You'll never walk alone! Beast mode!"
He also shared a caption along with the video which read: "Are u crazyyyyyyy the man, the myth, the legend sent me a Watsapp. Today can’t get any better. Thank you Klopp #YNWA#Beast20#BeastMode we did it #champHereWeCome "
Akinfenwa is considered one of the biggest personalities in English football, and recently received a fine from his club after he turned up to training with a Liverpool shirt on the day after the Reds clinched the Premier League title.
But he may now receive some money back after he told the Liverpool Echo ahead of the game against Oxford : "To be fair the gaffer told me he would halve my fine if we got promoted but I’d be so happy if we went up, I’ll still gladly pay the full amount. It would be money well spent.
“It’s crazy because in my mind I’ve visualised Liverpool doing what they’ve done and winning the Premier League and then on a personal note, us getting promoted to the Championship.
“It would be a very good middle to 2020 for me because this year has been kind of different.”
