Liverpool boss Juergen Klopp was so charmed by the sheer cheek of a young Manchester United fan who wrote to ask if he could start losing games that he sent the 10-year-old a personal reply, the German said on Friday.

Daragh Curley, from County Donegal, wrote to the 52-year-old coach this week asking if he could engineer a few Liverpool defeats so they do not win the Premier League this season.

“If you win nine more games, then you have the best unbeaten run in English football. Being a United fan that is very sad,” Curley wrote. “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.”
