Daragh Curley told Klopp that Liverpool are winning too many games and he asked the Premier League manager to make them lose the next time they play

The father of a Donegal boy who wrote to Jürgen Klopp asking him to stop Liverpool winning matches has said the Premier League manager is 'one in a million' after he replied to the youngster.

The father of a Donegal boy who wrote to Jürgen Klopp asking him to stop Liverpool winning matches has said the Premier League manager is "one in a million" after he replied to the youngster. Daragh Curley, who is a 10-year-old Manchester United fan, used the opportunity of a school writing project to pen the letter to the manager of his rival club. In the letter Daragh told Klopp that Liverpool are winning too many games and he asked the Premier League manager to make them lose the next time they play. He implored Klopp to let the other team score. He ended by saying that he hoped he had convinced Klopp to not win the league or any other match ever again. Daragh received a registered letter in response. Speaking to RTÉ's Drivetime yesterday, Daragh said that in the letter Klopp said "unfortunately, on this occasion I cannot grant your request, not through choice anyway". He went on to say that Liverpool have lost games in the past and will lose games in the future "because that is football." Klopp added that Manchester United are lucky to have Daragh as a fan. Daragh's father, Gordon Curley, explained that most of the kids in the class decided to write to Donald Trump and Boris Johnson. "Daragh decided to write a letter of complaint to Mr Klopp. "My wife was in the post office two weeks later with a registered letter addressed to Daragh. We thought 'who would be writing to Daragh from the UK' and he jumped up and shouted it's from Klopp!" Mr Curley said: "My opinion of Klopp was always one of admiration and respect. He fights like hell for his team. After reading the letter it only cements my opinion of him. "He's one in a million." "Daragh was over the moon. He was delighted. "The great thing about the letter was the sportsmanship. It was wonderful and a great gift. "My son hasn't stopped smiling." Read more: RTÉ News
