Wycombe Wanderers are in the Championship after a 2-1 League One Playoff final against Oxford at Wembley yesterday and nobody in the world is happier about it than their striker Adebayo Akinfenwa.
After the game, the 38-year-old gave an instantly legendary interview to Sky Sports.

Four years ago, Akinfenwa gave an interview after scoring the winner in Wimbledon's League Two playoff success, claiming he was technically unemployed and for managers out there to hit him on WhatsApp. This time, he only wanted Klopp to get in touch, "so we can celebrate together."
And, of course, Klopp being Klopp, he did exactly that. After messages of congratulations on Twitter from Virgin van Dijk and Jordan Henderson, the Premier League winning manager sent a congratulatory video to the Wycombe striker, which Akinfenwa shared on Twitter.

Brilliant. We're loathe to say, "this is what football is all about," but feck it, this is what football is all about.
