Liverpool Fans in Ticket Row Walkout
Back in October, Jurgen Klopp started his managerial career at Anfield and is already having ‘incidents’ with sports fans.
On Saturday at the 77th minute mark, thousands of Liverpool supporters just stood up and walked out of their beloved stadium – much to Klopp’s disappointment.
Against Sunderland, Liverpool had a comfortable lead of two goals to nil before half time. Late on in the game, Adam Johnson led an astonishing fight back, scoring the first of two goals in seven minutes, to secure a valuable point for a Sunderland side languishing at the bottom of the Premier League.
However, the fan walk out was not because Sunderland scored these two late goals, but because of a ticket row over the price of seats. A Liverpool group of supporters encouraged fans to leave their seats in the 77th minute because of a top price £77 seat ticket in the new built main stand for next season
“It’s not what we want,” exclaimed the 34-year-old boss, who was in hospital for a minor operation and therefore missed witnessing the exodus at close quarters.
The club will not be the same without the full support of their fans who are well known for their loyalty and highly vocal support.
Lots of football fans tweeted their feelings, like Roy Evans:
The Liverpool squad were actually going to hold a question and answer session at Anfield but, with the ticket row rumbling on, the meeting was cancelled.
The Reds are a proud club with a distinguished history, as their packed trophy cabinet proves. They will not want to lose their support and have to ‘walk alone’ on this ticket issue.
