10-year-old Man Utd fan has sent a letter to Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp to lose the next match to not win the Premier League this season, but he sent a letter … declined.
A young Manchester United fan wrote a letter to coach Jurgen Klopp with the following content: “To Uncle Klopp. My name is Daragh, I am 10 years old this year. I am from Glenswilly National School in Donegal. I am a Man United fan and the reason I wrote this letter is to complain to you about something.
Liverpool are winning a lot of matches. If you win 9 more games, you will reach the longest unbeaten string in English football. As a United fan, I feel very sad.
So, next time I hope Liverpool please lose. You should let another team score. I hope to convince you not to win the Premier League or other matches. Sincerely, Daragh ”.
After receiving the unexpected message, Coach Klopp wrote a reply with the content:
‘To Daragh. First of all I want to thank you for writing to me. I know you don’t wish me luck or anything like that, but no matter what, I’m always happy to hear from a small cheerleader. You make me very touched and grateful.
But in this case, unfortunately, I cannot meet your request. I really want Liverpool to fail but my duty is to do everything I can to help Liverpool win because there are millions of people around the world who want that to happen. He really did not want to disappoint them.
Fortunately for you, we have lost in the past and will lose in the future because that is football. The problem is that when I was 10 years old, I thought things would always turn out the way they do now, but if there was one thing a 52-year-old man like me could tell him, it certainly wasn’t.
However, after reading your letter, I thought that one thing could be sure that it would not change your passion for football and the club you admire. Manchester United are lucky to have a supporter, grandson.
I hope that if we are lucky enough to win more matches and can win a few more titles, you will not be too disappointed because our two clubs are great rivals of each other, we spend give each other a great respect. For me, that is the meaning of football. Wish you good health and good luck ”.
Gordon Curley, the father of Daragh Curley, said he was both shocked and happy to hear from Jurgen Klopp, his son. Daragh’s father said: “My wife, Tricia, went to the local post office and said that there was a letter to Daragh Curley. She wondered who wrote the letter to Daragh. When she said it, the boy replied, ‘Oh, it’s Jurgen Klopp’s uncle’. And indeed it was a letter from Jurgen Klopp.
I’m also a Man United supporter, it’s a pity that Liverpool are playing well but after all, you have to show respect for Klopp and what he did. He is a kind person, this letter really confirms to me that he is a decent and kind person. What I like about the letter is that it also shows a sense of sportiness and respect, I think it’s terrific to say this to a 10-year-old. ”
