Jurgen Klopp sends brilliant letter to 10-year-old Manchester United fan from Donegal asking him to stop winning

A brilliant manager and a brilliant man.

Jurgen Klopp is currently the best manager in the world, managing the best team in the world.

But when he's not precisely organising his side or storming up and down the touchline, he's a really sound man.

Daragh Curley, a 10-year-old Manchester United fan from Donegal, wrote a letter to Klopp, explaining his current predicament as a Manchester United fan.

He's a die-hard United fan, and (like many of us), he's absolutely sick of watching Liverpool winning all the time.

He 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.

"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 win another match again. Yours sincerely, Daragh."

And being the sound man that he is, Klopp replied.

He wrote: "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.’

"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."

What a man.
