Jurgen Klopp has always been known for his forever-positive and eccentric attitude.

The German has historically been close with the fans of whichever clubs he manages. But at Liverpool, he has become an unhateable figure around England having earned the respect of rival fans as well.

One such fan of Man Utd wrote a letter to Klopp which recently surfaced on the Daily Mail. The 10-year-old was upset about his side’s poor run of form this season and had chosen to write to the Reds boss to make an innocent request.

The young fan humbly asked Klopp’s side to let opponents score against them and lose a tie so that they do not go unbeaten for the entirety of the current Premier League campaign.

And the former Borussia Dortmund boss’ reply was equally brilliant as he sympathised and explained to Daragh why that is not possible.

The 52-year-old wrote: “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 Scousers have won 25 of their fixtures so far, drawing just one game apart from that. It really looks as if the Merseyside outfit are finally going to end their league title draught in the most grand way possible.
