Daragh's father was full of praise for Klopp's reaction at the BBC.

10-year-old Daragh Curley, from Co. He's obviously going to be a Premier League victor.

The German boss, speaking at a press conference on Friday, said he appreciated Daragh's "cheek" and chose to write back.

"He came across as a nice guy all along, I suppose this letter really confirms to me that he is a decent, decent guy". After reading your letter, I can affirm that if there is something not to change, it is your passion for football and for your club.

I have to improve myself and to learn much more things to get on this level and to play there.

Very few managers are adored and admired by the fans more than Jurgen Klopp.

"There will naturally be a comparison to me and Frank because there was when we were players".

"Yes I know that Liverpool is the best team in the world at the moment", he told ViasportFotball.

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

Her son already suspected: "Oh, it's from Jürgen Klopp".

Seventh case of COVID-19 diagnosed in B.C.
There are nearly 78,000 cases of confirmed cases of COVID-19 around the world after it broke out in Wuhan, China, in December. On Sunday, the World Health Organization said there were 28 confirmed cases and five deaths from the virus in Iran.

Daragh opened the letter to find a personally-signed letter from Klopp.

"You could tell by the language that he was using German phrases and that it was a personal response".

"Liverpool is winning too much". "If you win nine more games, you'll have the best unbeaten run in English football".

" I do not always want it, you want constantly to be the just one that does something unique yet if I do not and also they do it, I state well done".

Sepp van den Berg, 18, and the exceptionally gifted Harvey Elliot, 16, were the only other recruits drafted into the squad with the club lifting the Super Cup, Club World Cup and enjoying their best-ever league campaign despite minimal business.

"I expect a really tough match, 100 per cent", Klopp said.

"Daragh couldn't believe it and it was great to be able to bring it into the school and show his teachers and all his friends".

Klopp responded to Werner's comments over the weekend and said: "On the one side, it's easier if players see you as that". For me, that's what football is about.

Naturally, Klopp did not agree to the request, although he used a subtle way of saying it: "Unfortunately, this time I can not guarantee that I will access your request".
