Klopp Pens Brilliant Letter to Man United Fan
Jurgen Klopp wrote a heartwarming response to a young Manchester United fan who had sent a letter asking him to make Liverpool lose games.
Liverpool are currently 22 points clear at the top of the Premier League table and are chasing Arsenal’s 2004 49-game unbeaten run record – something which saddened a 10-year-old United fan, Daragh Curley.
He then wrote a letter to Klopp as part of a school assignment and said: “Liverpool are winning too many games. If you win nine more games then you have the best unbeaten run in English football. Being a United fan that is very sad.”
He added: “So the next time Liverpool play, please make them lose. I hope I have convinced you to not win the league or any other match ever again.”
Unexpectedly and despite his busy schedule, the 52-year-old German replied to Curley’s letter, and politely declined the request but gave the young boy hope.
He said: “Unfortunately, on this occasion I cannot grant your request, not through choice anyway. Luckily for you, we have lost games in the past and we will lose games in the future because that is football.”
Klopp ended the letter by praising Curley’s passion for football. He said: “I think I can safely say that one thing that will not change is your passion for football and for your club. Manchester United are lucky to have you.”
