LIVERPOOL (ENGLAND) – A young and dissatisfied Manchester United fan wrote a letter addressed to Jurgen KLOPP in class, asking him not to win again. The text of this letter is reported by ITALPRESS.
Little Manchester United fan writes to Klopp: "Liverpool is enough to win, for the other teams it is very sad".
"Liverpool are winning too many games – wrote the ten-year-old boy – If you win nine more games, you have the best series of undefeated matches in the history of English football. Being a United fan is very sad. The next time Liverpool plays, please make them lose. You should just let the other team score. I hope I convinced you never to win the championship or any other game again. "
KLOPP's response was not long in coming. As reported by the BBC, the boy's mother was perplexed when they told her from the post office that she had a registered letter for her son. The sender was Jurgen KLOPP, who responded to requests from the young "Red Devils" fan on Liverpool letterhead.
"First of all I would like to thank you for writing me, even if you have not wished me good luck or similar things, but it is always nice to hear something from the younger fans, so I appreciate that you have contacted me – reads the letter from Klopp – Unfortunately, in this case I can't satisfy your request.
As much as you want Liverpool to lose, my job is to do everything possible to help him win, because there are millions of people around the world who want this to happen, so I don't want to disappoint them. Fortunately for you, we have lost games in the past and will lose games in the future because it is football.
The problem is that when you are 10 years old you think things will stay forever as they are, but if there is one thing I can tell you at 52 years of age, it is definitely not like that. I can safely say that one thing that will not change is your passion for football and for your club.
Manchester United is lucky to have you. If we are lucky we will win other races for maybe some trophies. I hope it doesn't make you angry, because even if our clubs are great rivals, they share a great mutual respect. For me, football is this. "
The boy's father stressed: “Klopp must be respected for what he has done. What I love about the letter is that it also speaks of sportiness and respect and I think that saying these things to a 10-year-old boy is fantastic ".
“It was nice to reply to that letter. We had time that day, so I read the letter and replied. " Jurgen Klopp returns to the topic of the day, his response to the letter from a young Manchester United fan who asked him not to win anymore.
The Liverpool manager reciprocated with another letter in which he explained to the child why he could not accept his requests, emphasizing the beauty of football, which is also in the healthy rivalry between rival clubs:
"It was brazen," said Klopp jokingly. I have no problems with fans from other teams. It's a free world, so we can choose which one to cheer on, I don't think everyone should be Liverpool supporters. I like working for Liverpool and I like the kind of rivalry we have with others. But I love it even more if we can keep it on the field, beyond who gets it. "
The jovial atmosphere was disturbed by the news of Jordan Henderson's injury. The English midfielder will be out for about three weeks after suffering a hamstring injury during the first leg of the Champions League round of 16, a 1-0 loss at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid against Atletico.
“It could have been worse, it is still a hamstring – admits Klopp – There have been several in the Premier League, for example Harry Kane. But in this case it did not go so badly, it will take about three weeks, which is not nice, but we are lucky. "
The Reds' technician then returned to the knockout against the team of the "Cholo" Simeone: "it is something that goes far beyond the three points, like going from dawn to the hardest rain, and that's how we you should feel it.
If you really want to be successful, you have to feel very bad and that's how we felt. So we want to feel better even if it's a different competition. " In Premier the Reds will continue their race for the title by hosting West Ham in Anfield on Monday night. (ITALPRESS).
