What Klopp text Wilson after Liverpool loanee’s stunning goal against Man United
Jurgen Klopp sent a text message to Liverpool loanee Harry Wilson after he helped dump Manchester United out of the Carabao Cup.
The Welshman, who is on loan at Derby, scored a stunning free-kick last month before the Championship side won in a penalty shootout.
Wilson has been in fine form since joining Derby with Klopp keeping a close eye on his progress.
He further endeared himself to the Liverpool faithful with his celebration against Jose Mourinho’s side in tribute to the Reds’ superior record over United in the European Cup, reports Wales Online.
And Wilson has revealed Kop boss Klopp sent him a text message congratulating him on his wonder goal after the game, admitting that he was thrilled to hear from the manager who he hopes will pick him on Merseyside in the future.
"He messaged me after the United game," said the 21-year-old.
"He just said ‘fantastic free-kick, really great football’.
"It’s great to hear from the manager whose team you want to be in in the future."
The youngster’s national team boss Ryan Giggs jokingly stated that he was "not impressed" by Wilson’s free-kick against United before adding that he would be fined for his celebration.
And his celebration following his stunner against Giggs’ former employers was the first topic of conversation when Wilson arrived in the Wales camp ahead of their games against Spain and Republic of Ireland.
"He (Giggs) did mention it to me when I got into camp on Sunday," added Wilson.
