The new coach of Liverpool has eventually spoken a little something about the match ticket price issue. Liverpool has evolved the ticket price structure, what has produced complications amongst Liverpool fans. The utmost ticket price would be £77 that is certainly not liked by a large number of fans. Consequently, they walked out from the stadium on 77th minute during the Liverpool vs Sunderland match which ended up with 2-2 draw.
Liverpool were dominating the match through the first minute, but they conceded two goals after the walk out of supporters. In accordance with the coach, Jurgen Klopp, this is a big issue and in line with the supporters, football without fans is nothing.
Even though, Klopp was not there in the stadium due to an appendix surgery, but he knows almost everything relating to this problem. On this matter, he has said that,
It is not too easy for me to say too much about it. I heard about this problem but I’ve had a lot of things to do in the last few weeks, but now I know it is my problem too, of course.
But everything I could say about this now would make it more complicated because first of all I have to collect a few bits of information.
What I know is everyone in the club has a big interest in finding a solution for this. It is not what we want, we don’t want the people leaving the stadium before the game is finished. That is all I can say about this, but of course when I heard it (the walkout) I was disappointed.
On the other hand, they have also cancelled a Q&A session with Ian Ayre, the Chief Executive. According to the club authority,
LFC thanks fans for submitting questions for tonight’s Q&A however due to ongoing ticketing discussions, this will no longer take place.
Now, it has become a big issue for Liverpool as they have quite good fan base. At the same time, they are quite right as supporters play a vital role in every football match and they have seen that effect during the Sunderland match.
