A young Man Utd fan who wrote to Liverpool's manager asking him to lose some games gets a letter back from Jurgen Klopp ⚽

Jurgen Klopp says 10-year-old Daragh's letter asking for Liverpool to lose was 'nice' and 'cheeky'.

Daragh received the letter earlier this week Mr Curley said he was shocked when a reply came. "My wife Tricia was up in the local post office/shop and she was told that there was a registered letter there for Daragh Curley," he said. "She was wondering who would be sending Daragh a registered letter, but when she mentioned it to Daragh he said 'oh it's Jurgen Klopp'. "And it actually was Jurgen Klopp." Klopp's Liverpool are on course to win the Premier League and have not lost a league fixture so far this season. In his letter to Daragh, he said:"Unfortunately, on this occasion I cannot grant your request, not through choice anyway. "As much as you want Liverpool to lose it is my job to do everything that I can to help Liverpool to win as there are millions of people around the world who want that to happen, so I really do not want to let them down."

"The problem is when you are 10 years old you think that things will always be as they are now but if there is one thing I can tell you as 52 years old it is that this most definitely isn't the case." He added that Manchester United were lucky to have Daragh as a fan and praised his passion for football and for his club. Mr Curley said that Klopp"seems to be an awful, awful decent individual". "I would be a Man Utd fan myself, it's grating that Liverpool are doing so well, but behind it all you have to respect Klopp and what he's done," Mr Curley said. "He came across as a nice guy all along, I suppose this letter really confirms to me that he is a decent, decent guy. "What I love about the letter is that it's about sportsmanship and respect too and I think saying that to a 10-year-old is great." However, Mr Curley said his admiration for Klopp would not cause either himself or Daragh to switch their allegiances. "There's reinforcement techniques ongoing just to ensure that there's no swaying from the Man Utd mandate," he said. Share this story Read more: BBC News (UK)

Well done Jurgen! I doubt whether any other successful coach, especially from Daragh's club, would have done the same and showed their absolute love for football and respect for the people (from whatever side) who love football. Klopp is a class act. Hate the club he manages but he is undoubtedly one of the best managers in football. Not only his management style but him as a person. Fair play to the guy.

BBCWorld Klopp is a class act. I wanted him at Arsenal He looks cute lol He's Jurgen Klopp, not Bruce Grobbelaar. BBCWorld A true loyal fan . Bloody foreigners taking over our football.......? Wish Jurgen would write me a letter if you know what I mean That's great! The kids are alright! Apparently he wrote another letter to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer asking him to win some bloody games but he hasn't written back yet.
