Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has taken part in an impromptu video to give a vote of a support to a stricken Everton fan.

Little Noah is suffering from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a muscle wasting life shortening disease, and when his auntie bumped into Klopp at a Liverpool petrol station, the kind-hearted Reds boss agreed to send him a video message.

“Your auntie told me that at this moment you are not in the best shape, but that will change soon,” said Klopp. “I hear you are a huge Evertonian, but I hope you enjoy this video.”

His auntie then suggested Everton would beat Liverpool in the next Merseyside derby, which brought a dismissive response from Klopp, who again showed he his charitable persona with this wonderful message of support.
