Jordan van der Westhuizen, the son of South African rugby legend Joost, was left “speechless” after Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp responded to his letter following his father's death.
Former South Africa captain Joost, regarded as one of greatest scrum-halves in rugby history, sadly passed away in February at the age of 45, six years after being diagnosed with motor neurone disease.
Jordan, 13, penned an emotional letter in the wake of his Dad's passing, hailing his achievements on the rugby field while also asking his father to “please tell God that Liverpool must win.”
And Klopp has since responded to Jordan with his own letter alongside a signed shirt by himself and the Reds squad.
"Nothing that we say will ease your loss but we want you to know that our thoughts and sympathy is with you all," Klopp wrote.
"We know that your Daddy was a huge fan of Liverpool FC and we're so pleased that he shared his passion with you.
"The letter you wrote to him about LFC meant a lot to us, thank you so much for your support, we hope you will have happy memories of the time you spent with him watching LFC play.
"May you and your family know peace, comfort and strength at this sad time.
"You'll never walk alone."
The pictures have recently been shared on Instagram by Jordan's mother, Amor Vittone, capturing the hearts of football fans around the world.
Joost, who lifted the World Cup with the Springboks in 1995, won 89 international caps between 1993 and 2003.
