'Hopefully': 34-year-old PL star says he wants to be in Paris to cheer on Liverpool in the CL final

Adam Lallana has claimed that he’ll be hoping to get to Paris to watch Liverpool play in the Champions League final later this month.

Speaking to Sky Sports via Football Daily, the former Liverpool midfielder said that he’s been supporting his old team from a distance.

“It’s great seeing what they’re doing and obviously I’m following them and supporting them,” said the 34-year-old.

“Hopefully I can get out to Paris as well after the season’s finished for the Champions League final. It’s going to be great, two European giants going at it again and hopefully Liverpool can get the better of them this time.”

Lallana actually played the majority of the game last time The Reds faced Real in the final. Following Mohamed Salah’s game-ending shoulder injury in 2018, it was Lallana who Jurgen Klopp turned to in the 31st minute.

He was on the bench the following year as Liverpool beat Tottenham Hotspur to claim the trophy.

Ticket trouble

Lallana will do well to get himself a ticket for the final at this rate. UEFA’s ticket allocation for both teams has been very much on the stingy side.

Both sets of supporters have been limited to 20,000 tickets each. As a result, around half of the 80,000 capacity Stade de France will be filled by corporate sponsors and other such affiliates of the governing body.

Instead, the Brighton & Hove Albion man could watch it at home for free on BT Sport. The broadcaster is reportedly set to announce that the game will be aired without cost in the UK.

In the same interview though, Lallana claims that he speaks with former Liverpool teammates James Milner and Jordan Henderson ‘nearly every day.’

What’s the point of being pally with the captain and vice-captain of Liverpool if you can’t even get tickets for the Champions League final! Surely the man who will hopefully be lifting The Reds seventh European Cup in Paris will sort his old mate out with a ticket.

For Reds fans who don’t have a direct line to the skipper, it may be a little bit more tricky to secure a seat in the stadium.
