      I think Jürgen knows this is a very tough tie, and this is his message to both them and our fans. It might still be reasonably early in the tournament, but we need to have the place rocking.

      Schoolboy Man Utd fan's special letter from Klopp


      A young Manchester United fan who made a bid to stop Liverpool winning the title has been left shocked after Jürgen Klopp sent him a personal reply.

      Daragh Curley, from County Donegal, wrote to the Liverpool boss for a school assignment.

      The 10-year-old asked if it would be possible for Liverpool to lose some games so they would not win the league.

      Klopp wrote back, praising Daragh's passion, but explaining Liverpool could not drop points on his behalf.

      Daragh's dad Gordon told BBC News NI that while most of his classmates were writing fan letters, Daragh instead decided to write a letter of complaint to the Liverpool boss.

      In the letter, the Glenswilly National School pupil wrote: "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 any other match ever again."



      Mr Curley said he was shocked when a reply came.

      "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 Jürgen Klopp'.

      "And it actually was Jürgen Klopp."

      Klopp's Liverpool are on course to win the Premier League and have not lost a league fixture so far this season.

      In his letter to Daragh, he said: "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."

      He added that Manchester United were lucky to have Daragh as a fan and praised his passion for football and for his club.

      Mr Curley said that Klopp "seems to be an awful, awful decent individual".

      "I would be a Man Utd fan myself, it's grating that Liverpool are doing so well, but behind it all you have to respect Klopp and what he's done," Mr Curley said.

      "He came across as a nice guy all along, I suppose this letter really confirms to me that he is a decent, decent guy.

      "What I love about the letter is that it's about sportsmanship and respect too and I think saying that to a 10-year-old is great."

      However, Mr Curley said his admiration for Klopp would not cause either himself or Daragh to switch their allegiances.

      "There's reinforcement techniques ongoing just to ensure that there's no swaying from the Man Utd mandate," he said.

      Tournament for us will be reasonably over if we don't turn it around.

      When we win the Title and we then become the best team on the planet having conquered the EPL, the CL and the WCC Jürgen deserves to be acknowledged and if they can give that c**t Geldof some form of knight hood then they can give Jürgen one too. They ignored Bob Paisley by far the greatest manager in the English game so they can make amends with Sir Jürgen he would be chuffed with that

      He would only be able to get an honorary knighthood (same as Geldof) because he isn't a British citizen, but would he even want one?

      One game from equalling Roy Evans' record of number of Premier League games in sole charge of the club. That would leave just Houllier and Benitez ahead of him on that front.

      One goal from equalling Benitez' record of most goals scored under a Liverpool manager in the Premier League.

      And despite being our, soon-to-be, third most experienced Premier League manager in terms of games and our, soon-to-be, most attacking manager in terms of goals, he has still lost fewer Premier League games than any other Liverpool manager apart from Roy Hodgson who was only in charge of as many Premier League games for us as Klopp has lost in his first 171 games - 20 and Dalglish who lost 19 games of his 56 in charge. So in an extra 120 games (give or take) Klopp has lost only one more than The King did.

      Maybe a fairer assessment would be to look at Kenny when he managed us in the 80s and created arguably our greatest ever side. 224 League games in charge and a mere 32 defeats. One defeat every 7 games, Jürgen is currently one defeat in every 8.5 League games.

      It really highlights how good a job this man is doing.

      And he inherited a pretty ordinary side as well. Had a lot of building to do for two seasons.

      I agree with you, he's a class act, we are very lucky to have him as our manager.
