Liverpool have fans in tears as they give young supporter an emotional surprise

Liverpool have fans in tears this Christmas Day as they give one young supporter an emotional surprise to remember for the rest of his life.

The Reds published a video of the heartwarming moment, quickly racking racking up millions of views within hours.

Liverpool fan Daire Gorman, who was born without arms and legs due to an extremely rare condition called Crommelin Syndrome, can be seen welcomed to the AXA Training Centre by Jurgen Klopp, Luis Diaz, Mo Salah and a few other stars, as can be seen below.

The club said via their website: Dáire captured the hearts of millions – including Reds boss Klopp and his players – when he visited Anfield for the first time in September, with the help of the Liverpool Disabled Supporters Association, and footage of his powerful reaction to hearing You’ll Never Walk Alone was shared widely across social media.

The 12-year-old, who has the rare condition Crommelin Syndrome and is a full-time wheelchair user, and his family were subsequently personally invited back to Merseyside by Klopp earlier this month.

Dáire was present to see Liverpool produce a thrilling comeback to beat Fulham 4-3 at Anfield, a game that coincided with the UN’s annual International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

The Gorman family then headed to the Reds’ training ground the following day to meet and chat with Klopp, as well as players including his hero Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah, before a guided tour of the facility by the manager.

Celebrating our diverse fanbase is a part of LFC’s Red Together work, which encompasses the club’s commitment to ensuring equality, diversity and inclusion is embedded into everything it does.

The lad says: “My name is Daire. I am twelve years old.

“I live with my Mum, my Sister, my Dad and my Nanny comes here as well.

“My life is, Liverpool means absolutely everything.

“I can’t put it into words. It’s just a complete escape.

“There’s absolutely nothing I love more.”

Mum and Dad: “Daire is definitely one in a million.

“He has a massive personality. He’s unique to us. His overall outlook on life, which is fantastic.

“Daire was born with a condition called Crommelin.

“It’s very rare known to us. There’s only maybe seven, eight worldwide.

“So he has no arms from about his elbow down. And he’s also missing the femur bone in both of his legs.

“Which means obviously he can’t walk.

“Then he’s a full time wheelchair user.

‘”What he has come through over the last twelve years.

“And he’s still smiling, which is amazing. 

“I didn’t push Liverpool on Daire.

“I wanted him to make his own decision.

“But instantly Liverpool.

“And it does nothing else.

“It’s like Liverpool is his best friend.

“That’s what it’s like. It is. 

“Liverpool Football Club is his best friend.”
