UEFA has decided to refund tickets to Liverpool fans
UEFA has decided to refund tickets to Liverpool fans who attended last year’s Champions League final because of security issues they encountered. An independent UEFA investigative committee has concluded that the calmness deserved by Liverpool fans was what prevented a horrific d.i.s.a.s.t.e.r in Paris. The committee argued that UEFA had flouted safety and security rules, that French police behaved incompetently when they fired tear gas at crowds, and that French Interior Minister Gerard Darmanin had inflated the number of fans. no Liverpool ticket as an excuse to cover up other defeats.
UEFA apologized and promised to pay the damages. The announcement from UEFA said:
“We have taken into account a large number of views expressed publicly and privately, and we believe we have devised a comprehensive and fair plan.
We appreciate input from Liverpool fan associations Spirit of Shankly (SoS) and Liverpool Disability Supporters Association (LDSA), as well as open and transparent dialogue throughout. this time.
We take note of the n.e.g.a.t.i.v.e experience of the fans that day and with this plan, we will refund the fans who purchased tickets and those affected by the difficulty in entering the stadium. “.

Before that, many Liverpool fans had sued UEFA in groups. Hundreds of fans with tickets were denied entry because of the chaos outside the stadium. Many people were accused of holding fake tickets, but in reality, the security staff was not trained for this situation and the scanners to check tickets were faulty.
Liverpool’s 7-0 victory over Man United was a ᵴҺоcĸ to English football in particular and world football in general.
No one could have imagined that Man United, who is in extremely high form with 21 consecutive matches unbeaten in all competitions, would collapse easily at Anfield. Last week, the “Red Devils” just won the League Cup, but their aura was soon extinguished in the English derby on the morning of 6-3.
To be fair, Man United had a not-bad first half. The “Red Devils” could not control the game and were pressed by Liverpool, but still made the home fans’ hearts flutter with sharp counter-aттаcĸs.
Even when Cody Gakpo put his heart into a beautiful goal to put Liverpool ahead, most optimists did not dare to think of an easy victory for the home team. However, 45 minutes of the second half witnessed Liverpool’s terrible torture of Man United.
In the 47th minute, Darwin Nunez headed home to make the game 2-0. At this time, Man United put the squad to aттаcĸ to find an equalizer and trap Liverpool’s counteraттаcĸ. In the 60th minute, Liverpool made an exemplary counter-aттаcĸ and Cody Gakpo was the last to finish, raising the score to 3-0 for the home team.
Gakpo’s goal poured cold water on Man United and caused the “Red Devils” to officially collapse. This goal has all the factors that make the opponent mentally collapse. The simple ball with 2-3 passes reached the goal of Man United. Not only that, but Salah also had a breakthrough that made world champion Lisandro Martinez stagger and fall. Then, Gakpo finished with a cool lob past goalkeeper David De Gea.
In the next few minutes, Man United lost consciousness and instinctively rushed to aттаcĸ. The “Red Devils” did not have any defense on the home side and that laxity cost 4 goals in the next minutes.
Mohamed Salah (minutes 66, 83), Nunez (minutes 75), and Roberto Firmino (minutes 88) were the scorers to bring Liverpool a 7-0 victory. With two goals in this match, striker Mohamed Salah surpassed the legendary Robbie Fowler to become the club’s greatest striker in the history of the club in the Premier League arena with 129 goals.
On the side of Man United, the defeat to Liverpool is the heaviest defeat of the “Red Devils” in the past 92 years. So it’s not an exaggeration to say that this is Man United’s failure of the century. After round 26, Man United is still third in the rankings with 49 points, while Liverpool is close to the top 4 when standing in 5th place with 42 points in hand.
