A Liverpool fan decided to take his son out of school to attend the Champions League final and his reply to the system that texted him is sensational.
The Reds take on Real Madrid in Saint-Denis this evening and it could be the perfect end to a near perfect season for Jurgen Klopp's side.
Liverpool have won the Carabao Cup and FA Cup already and are favourites to win Europe's elite competition for a seventh time.
Tage Herstad, landlord of Taggy’s Bar in Merseyside, and his son William jetted out to France on Thursday for the occasion.
Schools in the UK are open right now William will miss two days in total to travel abroad. His absence was picked up by the school monitoring system and Tage had the perfect response.
"That is correct," Tage stated.
"He is on his way to Paris with his dad and his dad’s very bad mates, to watch the treble chasing Reds in yet another CL [Champions League] final.
"He’ll hopefully bring home big ears No 7. #partytime #yolo #roflmao."
Tage also sent a picture of him and his son stood with his 'very bad mates' in front of what appears to be a ferry.
Fans online have reacted to the viral message and they support Tage in giving his son an incredible experience.
One commented: "Not a Liverpool fan. But fair play to the dad. Missing a couple days of school to potentially experience one of the best nights of his life with his dad. You can't teach that at all."
Another said: "Life experience and memories - worth it."
While a third put: "As a headteacher I have to say... I LOVE THIS. Go for it kid."
Sorry to disappoint you all but we are now in Paris 😆🖕🏼 pic.twitter.com/PEMy3WRvQw— Taggy’s (@taggysbar) May 27, 2022
Some did try to criticise Tage for his decision and he decided to delete the original tweet.
That saw him tweet a response of: "It really doesn't matter. It's his third CL final, and hopefully not his last. This is the holy grail of club football, and I want him to be there with me."
Shortly after that, a tweet claimed to be reporting Tage to authorities. That didn't faze him and he hit back with: "Do whatever you feel you have to do so it makes your life better mate. Crack on and work on bringing #selfrespect into your own head."
There's no word on if Tage will be penalised for this yet, but he and his son were in Madrid for the 2019 final and he tweeted proof it wasn't a hoax.
Hahaha...yes of course🙄 Why has this triggered so many fools?— Taggy’s (@taggysbar) May 28, 2022
It's just an honest message back to the school instead of lying. Did it for Madrid aswell 😆🖕🏼 pic.twitter.com/5GaC3wz0Kw
The kind of memories you'll never forget.
Liverpool vs Real Madrid kicks off at 8pm in the United Kingdom.
