Liverpool legend John Aldridge has criticised UEFA for their decision that will have a huge impact on the four English sides which made to the European cup finals this season.
The former Red’s in his weekly column for the Liverpool ECHO and put up the points that fans of Liverpool, Spurs, Chelsea and Arsenal will all agree with.
All the four club fans have been allocated fewer tickets for the Champions League and Europa League finals to be played in the next couple of weeks.
He wrote in the ECHO: “It’s ridiculous that Liverpool have to wait 21 days between their last Premier League game and the Champions League final.
“For me, it’s pathetic and sums UEFA up – along with their decision to hold the Europa League final in Baku.
“It’s just big business. UEFA keep their tickets back, and the sides contesting the final get allocations that aren’t enough.”
Liverpool and Spurs fans have each been allocated less than 17,000 tickets in a stadium that has nearly a capacity of 70,000. It’s shocking that UEFA will provide most of the tickets to their partners and the local organising committee.
It’s obvious that they want to make money but its the fans who finally deserve to be in attendance and not forced to buy tickets resold at a high price.
Liverpool will face Tottenham in the finals of the Champions League on June 2 at the Wanda stadium in Madrid.
