Daragh Curley, 10, is a diehard United fan who hates to see his team lose.

He wrote a letter to Klopp asking him to make Liverpool lose their remaining games so they would not win the Premier League.

Jurgen has reached out to Daragh, explaining why he can’t do that by choice.
The Liverpool boss has also praised the kid’s passion for the Red Devils.

A story of young Man United fan who wrote a letter to Jurgen Klopp asking him to make Liverpool lose their remaining Premier League games so they would not win the title has gone viral.

In his letter to the Liverpool boss, Daragh Curley, 10, pointed out how sad it is to see United’s bitter rivals on their way to the best unbeaten run in English football.

“Dear Jurgen Klopp, My name is Daragh. I am 10 years old. I go to Glenswilly N.S in Donegal. I support Man United and the reason I am writing is to complain,” the letter read.

“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 ever again.
“Yours sincerely, Daragh.”

Daragh wrote his letter for a school assignment. No wonder, neither he nor his father Gordon expected Klopp to reply. Mr Curley was rather shocked when he discovered the reply.

“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.”
In his 262-word letter, the Liverpool manager explained: “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.

“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.”

The Merseyside club are close to winning their first-ever Premier League title this season. They’ve won each of their league matches this term so far, apart from October’s trip to Old Trafford. United drew Klopp’s men 1-1 back then
