WATCH: Klopp sends congratulations to Akinfenwa after Wycombe promotion

Jurgen Klopp has contacted Adebayo Akinfenwa after his Wycombe Wanderers secured promotion to the Championship.

Wycombe reached the Championship for the first time after Monday's 2-1 League One play-off victory over Oxford United at Wembley.

A mad Liverpool fan, Akinfenwa called out Klopp to contact him in his post-match interview.

And the Reds boss complied with a short congratulatory message to the burly striker.

In a video message sent to Akinfenwa, Klopp said: "Hello big man, congratulations!

"Watched the game, well I didn't see the post-match interviews but Hendo [Jordan Henderson] or one of my players told me that you want to get, what did you think to say? If you could get in contact with me on WhatsApp, here we go!

"Congratulations. I'm pretty sure your whole life at least a Championship player and now finally, you are there. Well done.

"Great, great victory. Even in strange times, I hope you celebrate appropriately."
