Liverpool fan Adebayo Akinfenwa joked that only the Reds boss Jurgen Klopp should contact him so they can celebrate together after Wycombe has been promoted to the championship.
Wycombe beat Oxford United 2-1 in the League One qualifier on Monday night to secure second-level football next season, with a crucial strike from Joe Jacobson from the penalty spot with 11 minutes left.
Akinfenwa joined the club four years ago after leaving Wimbledon on a freestyle, despite helping them gain promotion to Ligue 1 by defeating Plymouth in the Ligue 2 playoff final.

The 38-year-old striker said in the 2016 post-match interview that he was “technically unemployed” and pleaded, “Any manager hit me on WhatsApp and found me a job.” .
The contract for the former Swansea striker in Wycombe should also expire at the end of the campaign, but Akinfenwa insisted that only Liverpool boss Klopp was allowed to send him a message this time.
“Look, look, let me calm down. First of all, I want to thank God because today he made the impossible possible, ”he told Sky Sports.
“Four years ago, I stood in front of you and I was technically unemployed.
Akinfenwa joined the club in 2016 and has now contributed to the sealed promotion of the championship.
“Let me tell you something, the only person who can hit me on WhatsApp this time is Klopp, so that we can celebrate together. You got me? Oi! ”
The former Millwall striker was also the victim of racist abuse during the play-off in the semi-final against Fleetwood Town.
The allegations suggest that he was repeatedly called a “big water buffalo” by a representative from Fleetwood, an incident that sparked an FA investigation.
But Akinfenwa insisted that he was not in the mood to discuss the incident so soon after Wycombe reached his goal.

But the Liverpool fan insisted that only the Reds boss Klopp should contact him now.
“I have time to talk about it, and I’m going to talk about it,” he added. “Life in football is a matter of opinion. Someone gave their opinion on me, and that was their opinion.
“I hope my story shows that the only opinion that matters is the opinion you have of yourself.
“I was fortunate and fortunate to find a coach and players who believed in me, so here we are today, and I’ll tell the people in the back: Wycombe’s in the championship.
“Wait, wait, I’ll say it one more time: Wycombe is in the Champio- Wait!” The people in the back didn’t hear me! Wycombe is in the championship! ”
Akinfenwa also said it was not the right time to speak about the allegations of racist abuse against him
