Jurgen Klopp issues message of support to Thai football team trapped in cave

The Liverpool manager sent a message on behalf of the LFC family

Reuben Pinder

They’re going through an unimaginable experience

Jurgen Klopp is one of football’s most well informed, warm and friendly characters. His paternal management style means he forms great bonds with his players, who in return show him great loyalty.

The Liverpool boss has shown his humility and kindness once again by offering a message of support to the Thai football team who are trapped in a cave, 2km below ground.

The team stuck down there comprises a group of boys, none of whom can swim.

A Navy SEAL today died while trying to rescue the boys due t a lack of oxygen, as the situation grows bleaker.

Mr Kunan passed away after running out of air while diving in the caves where the 12 boys and their football coach are trapped. The 38-year-old died while placing air tanks around the cave.

After attempting to come back to the surface he lost consciousness. His diving partner performed CPR but the efforts were tragically in vain.
