The son of late Springbok legend Joostvan der Westhuizen, Jordan, was left “speechless” when he received a heartfelt letter from Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp following the death of his father.
With Liverpool winning their first Premier League title in 30 years, we thought it timely to look back at this kind act from the Reds boss.
“Nothing that we say will ease your loss but we want you to know that our thoughts and sympathy is with you all.” wrote Klopp.
“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.”
