The best and funniest tweets from the world of football this week, featuring Adebayo Akinfenwa’s infectiously delightful interview following Wycombe Wanderers playoff win, hitting up Jurgen Klopp on WhatsApp, and Leeds United finally return to the Premier League
If the past four years of Beast Mode’s career was a Hollywood film story arc, this week would have been the perfect ending.

Actually, this was the happy ever after he deserved.
Adebayo Akinfenwa asked Jurgen Klopp to 'hit him up on Whatsapp' after Wycombe's promotion and the Liverpool manager didn't disappoint! 📲🔴 pic.twitter.com/MLxIAyFkCd

Whatever you think of Leeds United, you can’t help but be happy for Marcelo Bielsa.
😍 Thank you Marcelo! pic.twitter.com/4hf8T0QW8Z

His backroom staff are probably cursing him, however.
Spare a thought for Marcelo Bielsa’s coaching staff, whilst we all celebrate they’re just about to start binge watching every Burnley game since 2007.

And Frank Lampard is definitely sweating.
If Marcelo Bielsa doesn’t inflict an absolute pummelling on Frank Lampard’s Chelsea next season before giving a PowerPoint presentation in Costa Coffee Wetherby explaining exactly how he did it, we can just sack football off.

But Pep Guardiola will always have mucho respect for the real G.O.A.T.
Looking forward to Leeds getting pumped 6-0 at Manchester City next season and Pep Guardiola saying that they’re one of the best teams he’s ever faced
