Jurgen Klopp Brilliantly Replies To Young Manchester United Fan's Letter
Jurgen Klopp has brilliantly replied to a letter from a young Manchester United fan who asked Liverpool to 'stop winning'.
10-year-old Daragh Curley decided to send Klopp the message on January 24 after 'The Reds' dominant start to the season.
In the letter, the Glenswilly National School pupil wrote: "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.
"So the next time Liverpool play, please make them lose. You should just let the other team score. I hope I have convinced you to not win the league or any other match ever again."
It seems clear that the letter hasn't altered Liverpool's momentum, but Klopp took time out of his day to reply to Daragh.
The 52-year-old explained that it's his job to keep his side winning and he doesn't want to let Liverpool fans down.
We :hearts: this!

Klopp's reply reads:
"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.
"Luckily for you, we have lost games in the past and we will lose games in the future because that is football.
"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."
Klopp went on to praise Daragh and explained United are lucky to have the youngster as a fan.
'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.
'Although our clubs are great rivals we also share a great respect for one another. This, to me, is what football is all about.'
Daragh's dad Gordon told BBC News NI that his son had written to Klopp as part of a school assignment.
Mr Curley said he was shocked the German coach had replied.
He is an absolute class act is Klopp!

"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."
A touch of class from the Liverpool boss.
