A liverpool pub owner who traveled to Paris with his son for Saturday night Champions League final with real Madrid went viral for the bold way he informed the boy’s school that the student would not be attending some classes this week.

Tage Herstad, owner of popular Merseyside venue Taggy’s Bar, left for the French capital on Thursday with his son William and a group of pals.

Their decision to make it a weekend in Paris inevitably meant that William would have to miss at least two days of school to make the trip – not that his dad was in the least bit bothered when asked to. explain why his son had not come. for registration on Thursday morning.

Invited by the school to respond to an SMS with the reason for his son’s absence, William’s father did not hide anything.

“That’s right,” Tage’s response began.

“He’s on his way to Paris with his dad and his dad’s really bad buddies, to watch the treble chase after the Reds in another CL [Champions League] final.

“I hope he brings home big ears No.7. #partytime #yolo #roflmao,” he wrote in reference to the Champions League trophy. Saturday’s victory will see Liverpool crowned as Europe’s elite club for the seventh time in their history.

Along with his confirmation of the reason for William’s absence, his father cheekily included a photo of the group of travelers preparing to board the ferry to France.

Tage’s decision to allow his son out of school has certainly drawn his fair share of praise on Twitter, with many saying a trip to Paris is worth far more to the young man than the two days he he would otherwise have gone to school.

“A few days off from school in exchange for a lifetime memory of an experience with his dad,” one supportive comment explained.

“Not all education happens in the classroom,” agreed another.

“At the time, they were called ‘important family commitments’,” said a third.

After realizing the situation had exploded on Twitter, Tage tweeted again to insist: “It really doesn’t matter. This is his third UCL final, and hopefully not the last. He’s the holy grail of club football, and I want him there with me.”

The Herstad family therefore certainly hopes that this weekend’s trip to the final will not be the last. However, authorities may well be keeping a close eye on William’s presence in the future after a Twitter user claimed he had already reported Tage to authorities about the matter.

They wrote: “With a heavy heart, I reported your family to the police for absenteeism. We need to bring #SELFRESPECT back to our schools.

For that, Tag replied: “Do what you feel you have to do to make your life better mate. Fall in love and work to bring #self-respect to your own head”.

It remains to be seen if any formal action will be taken against the family.

Education, of course, is an essential part of any child’s development. That said, the opportunities to attend such an important event for your club on foreign soil as a family are rare for the most part.

We’ll let you draw your own conclusion as to which side of this argument you fall on.
