Liverpool supporter Simon Wilson and his friends have finally arrived back at Anfield after driving 1,290 miles to watch his side beat Tottenham in the Champions League final in Madrid.
The fan opted to drive to Madrid to witness the final as flights to Spain cost almost £800. The ardent fan said: ‘I love Liverpool FC, I’ve been to all the matches, but there was no way I was gonna pay out £800 for a flight that I could get for £40 next week.’
Narrating his experience he said ‘It was a little bit of a long car ride back but I think it only cost us around £200 on petrol each way, so we’ve got four people to the final for half the price of one person flying over.
One hundred percent, I’d recommend people give it a try.’
Amidst several difficulties along the way, Wilson doubted they would arrive in time to watch the game, but made it in time to watch Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi score in both halves to seal a sixth European Cup.
