Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool boss says ticket row ‘not what we want’


Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says it is “in everyone’s best interest to find a solution” to the row over Anfield ticket prices.
Several thousand supporters walked out on Saturday before Liverpool threw away a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 with Sunderland.
A supporters’ group had urged fans to leave their seats in the 77th minute in protest at the £77 top-priced ticket in the new main stand next term.
“It’s not what we want,” said Klopp, who missed the game with appendicitis.
“What I know is everyone in the club has a big interest in finding a solution for this.
“We don’t want that people leave the stadium before the game is finished.”
Liverpool have cancelled a live question and answer session with fans as the row over Anfield ticket prices rumbles on.
Chief executive Ian Ayre was due to answer queries sent in by fans via Twitter about the controversial 2016-17 pricing structure on the club’s television station at 18:00 GMT on Monday.
However, the event was cancelled by the club just over fours hours beforehand.
“LFC thanks fans for submitting questions for tonight’s Q&A however due to ongoing ticketing discussions, this will no longer take place,” said a statementon the club’s Twitter account.
