Liverpool Have Lost Four Times Since Manchester United-Supporting Kid Wrote To Jurgen Klopp
Liverpool have suffered four defeats in six since a Manchester United-supporting kid wrote to Jurgen Klopp to tell them to "stop winning".
10-year-old Daragh Curley from Donegal penned a brilliant letter to the Liverpool boss on January 24 after a stunning start to the campaign.
"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," the letter read.
"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."
Klopp replied in brilliant fashion to the youngster, explaining that it is his job to win football matches but acknowledging that his side would "lose games in the future".
But the German probably didn't expect a flurry of defeats to come so quickly following on from the Glenswilly National School pupil's message.
Klopp's side saw their unbeaten record in the Premier League go when they were defeated 3-0 away at an Ismaila Sarr-inspired Watford, while they were knocked out of the FA Cup and Champions League by Chelsea and Atletico Madrid respectively - the latter beating them home and away in the round of 16.
Their only victories were narrow home wins over West Ham United and Bournemouth.
The defeat to Atletico ended a 43-game unbeaten run at Anfield and and resulted into their first European defeat on home soil since 2014.
