“I had a ticket stored, devastated”

Adam Morgan

Adam Morgan, who came up through Liverpool’s youth setup, shared the gutting experience in a now-deleted tweet. 

The 25-year-old said he planned to meet the seller in Northern Ireland before jetting off to Madrid ahead of the Reds’ showdown wither Tottenham on Saturday. 

He said: “When there are people like this in the world what chance you got ay!”

Morgan added: “I booked flights to go pick ticket up from Belfast this morning, as I am boarding the plane, I get a text saying he now can not meet me.

“Flights and hotel booked for Madrid thought I had a ticket stored devastated.” 

Morgan is among tens of thousands of fans who struggled to get a ticket to watch the game in Spain. 

UEFA allocated a meagre 16,613 seats each to Liverpool and Spurs at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium, home of Athletico Madrid. 

As a result, many fans frustrated at missing out turned to second-hand sellers.

The lad’s Twitter followers rallied behind the former Reds striker, saying the same was a “disgrace”.

One commenter said: “Just read what happened, mate. F***ing disgrace the way you were treated. 

“I hope to God you get a ticket you deserve it. How anybody could do something like that is beyond me. 

“Chin up kid you will get a ticket. YNWA.” 

Morgan made his first-team breakthrough for the side under Brendan Rodgers tenure during the 2012/13 season. 

He made his debut for Liverpool as a substitute in their Europa League win over Hearts.

Liverpool face Tottenham at 8pm on Saturday on BT Sport 2.
