The Liverpool fan journey to Madrid, for the Champions League final, has ended after a safe return to Anfield, and he's said he would do it again.

  • Liverpool fan who drove £40 car to Champions League final makes it back to Anfield

"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.

Yeah, 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.", he said.

He did encounter a few problems on his way to Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

"I'll be honest, the whole way down to Madrid, I was skeptical that we'd make it," he said. "I mean we'd just gotten to Dover for the ferry and a pipe blew off of the engine."

Simon "one hundred percent" recommends people to give it a try while teasing something big if Liverpool reach next season's Champions League final in Istanbul, Turkey.

"One hundred percent, I'd recommend people give it a try. If we make it to Istanbul next year, there'll be something big coming."

And... he's keeping the car.

"Oh, I'm keeping the car," he added. "It's gonna be the daily runner I reckon. I'll get it done up first though!".
