The mother of a young Liverpool fan who wrote to Jurgen Klopp regarding his worries about moving schools said on Monday that they had been “blown away” by the Reds boss’ thoughtful reply.
Lewis Balfe, 11, wrote to Klopp in August about the anxiety he was feeling over starting a new school in September.
“He’s really excited and I was completely blown away, because I thought you might get a standard response from the club or you might get some acknowledgement, but I didn’t think you’d get a letter so personal,” Milena Balfe told Britain’s Press Association news agency.
In his letter Klopp, who guided Liverpool to their first English title of the Premier League era last season, wrote: “Can I start by telling you a secret? I get nervous.
“To be totally honest, I would be worried if I did not get nervous because when it happens it gives me the chance to turn that energy into something positive.” (Guardian)
