Liverpool fans: Unhappy at hike in ticket prices

Former Liverpool manager Roy Evans believes the club will listen to the supporters over ticket prices.

A large number of fans showed their displeasure at the increase in prices for next season by walking out in the 77th minute of Liverpool’s clash with Sunderland on Saturday.

The Reds had been winning 2-0 at the time but went on to draw the match 2-2.

Moves are already afoot within the club’s hierarchy – who cancelled Monday night’s question-and-answer session with chief executive Ian Ayre on their own television channel – to consider reviewing the ticket pricing structure.

Evans, who managed the club between 1994 and 1998, told talkSPORT: “The walkout was done in a very positive way without any hassle whatsoever.

“I hope the club’s response is as good as I thought the fans’ protest was. I’m sure Liverpool are sensible enough to make this not a big issue and to listen to the fans.

“It’s supposed to be a game for the fans. Whether you can afford tickets or you can’t afford tickets, it’s a game for everybody.

“I understand there’s got to be revenue, there has got to be stuff going in. The players are getting paid ridiculous amounts of money – we’d all take it by the way, don’t get me wrong.

“But at the end of it all you can’t just keep putting that load onto the fans.”
