The 10-year-old Manchester United fan asks Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp to lose. This is what he replied to


Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp has often made headlines for his witty answers. The Liverpool boss has caused a sensation again with his hilarious response to a 10-year-old Manchester United fan.

The triumphal march of the Reds in the Premier League seems a little too much for the young lad. The 10-year-old boy, dissatisfied with the prospect of Liverpool winning his first title in 30 years, wrote a letter to Klopp asking him to let his team lose in the next game.

In the letter, the boy introduced himself as Daragh, a Manchester United fan. He said the Reds are winning too many games and if they win nine more they will have the best unbeaten run in England, which is sad for a Manchester United fan.

Daragh asked Klopp if he was convinced of his letter not to win the league.

"If you win nine more games, you'll have the best unbeaten run in English football. It's very sad as a United fan," Daragh wrote in a letter to The Guardian.

"So the next time Liverpool play, please let them lose. You should just let the other team hit. I hope I convinced you never to win the league or any other game."

The Liverpool head coach replied to Daragh's letter, but added that unfortunately he could not comply with his request.

Klopp wrote, however much the boy wanted Liverpool to lose, it is his job to help Liverpool win, as there are millions of people who want them to be victorious.

The Liverpool boss said his team had lost in the past and will continue to be defeated in the future. He explained that dominance is not permanent and things are changing.

Klopp praised Daragh and said that Manchester United are lucky enough to have a fan like him.


Liverpool and Manchester United are bitter opponents and have 38 English championship titles between them – United (20) and Liverpool (18).
