The truth behind Liverpool fans' costly nightmare following their team to Kiev


Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher got caught up in the Champions League final fever in Kiev as he belted out the Mohamed Salah song with a bar full of Reds fans.

In a video posted on Twitter on Friday, he said: "We've had more discussions this morning with Mayor Klitschko and also the director of the airport".

Liverpool mayor Joe Anderson insisted he was "working really hard" with Kiev's mayor, former world heavyweight champion boxer Vitali Klitschko, to find a solution for all those who face missing the match against Real Madrid.

He said he was eventually able to secure the aircraft, but could not locate a suitable crew. "Frustrated by utter shambles faced by loyal fans".

One of those planes was rescheduled to leave Liverpool John Lennon Airport on Friday morning but the other two flights remain cancelled leaving 650 supporters stranded.

And the club said those who provide their unused ticket, as well as confirmation of the ticket's purchase and flight cancellation, will be eligible for refunds.

Financial adviser Jason McGimpsey, 43, was looking forward to the trip of a lifetime but was told on Thursday his flight was cancelled.

He told Britain's Press Association: "Worldchoice Sports had been stalling on giving us e-tickets and exact departure times and it's become clear why that was th case, now finally they've said "we've cancelled it".

He continued: "I've been offered a refund but it doesn't go anywhere near compensating me for what I've lost".

Ukrainian police arrested just two who took part in the attack, with a number of Liverpool supporters left bloody from cuts and wounds to their faces and bodies.

"I am gutted, to say the least".

"Obviously I'm absolutely devastated not to be involved in such a big game but at the same time really excited for the boys and for the club in what could be a very special day", he said.
