(Video) Heartwarming moment as Klopp reunites with Neco Williams; tells him his goal was deflected

Posted by

Neco Williams left Liverpool last summer and did so with the best wishes of everyone from within the club he had played for since the age of six, especially his former boss Jurgen Klopp.

With the Welshman scoring in the game, he looked a little nervous when our manager came over to see him and first pretended that he didn’t want to shake his hand – before the pair shared a big embrace.

You can then hear the German say: “It was deflected!”, to which the 22-year-old replied: “It was on target though so it’s my goal!”.

It’s another brilliant insight into the respect that the 55-year-old garners from his players that, even when they’ve left a club that means so much to them, they still have such a strong bond with him.
