Klopp sends heartwarming response to 10-year-old Manchester United fan asking Liverpool to stop winning

Jurgen Klopp has sent an endearing response to a young Manchester United fan who had sent a letter to the Liverpool boss asking for his side to stop winning matches.

Liverpool are runaway leaders in the Premier League, could have the title wrapped up in March and are closing in on English football's longest unbeaten run - currently held by Arsenal.

"Liverpool are winning too many games," 10-year-old Daragh Curley wrote.

"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."

Klopp received the letter at Liverpool's training ground and even sent a heartwarming response to the Irish youngster.

"Firstly, I would like to thank you for writing to me. I know you did not send me good luck or anything like that but it is always good to hear from a young football fan no matter what," Klopp opened his letter.

"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."

Klopp continued to give the boy some hope though, however unlikely it seems that they will lose in the Premier League, before giving him something of a life lesson.

"Luckily for you, we have lost games in the past and will lose games in the future because that is football," the German wrote.

"The problem is that 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 [sic] it is that this most definitely isn't the case.

"Having read your letter, though, 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.

"I hope that if we are lucky enough to win more games and maybe even lift some more trophies you will not be too disappointed because although our clubs are great rivals we also share a great respect for one another.

"This, to me, is what football is all about.

"Take care and good luck."
