The gateman at Melwood, Kenny Grimes, is retiring after over 25 years of service for Liverpool FC, and Jurgen Klopp has made a promise him.
The boss has said he’ll personally show Grimes around Kirkby and that he’ll always be made welcome at Melwood.
It’s a nice touch from the boss, and an approach that we’ve come to expect, from a man who seemingly goes above and beyond to make sure everyone is fairly appreciated.
Honestly, Klopp has shades of Bill Shankly about him – in the way that he managed the club from top to bottom. We do love to see it.
Take a watch of the video below (via LFC TV):
‘You are always welcome at Melwood and Kirkby. I’ll show you around Kirkby personally.’
