Jurgen Klopp has revealed details of a conversation with UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin where the Liverpool manager called for more affordable tickets for the Champions League final.

The pricing structure for the Champions League final in Paris on May 28 came under fire this month by many who view the fees as extortionate.

LONG READ: Liverpool icon went from sleeping in a shed to inventing the Adidas Predator The Liverpool boss told his Friday press conference ahead of the FA Cup final: "Yes, it was me.

We didn't speak, he texted me.

"What is it, 93% of the Champions League money goes to the clubs and UEFA only gets a few euros?

And the Reds boss also explained why he branded the Nations League as "one of the most ridiculous ideas in the world of football" to the chief of the European game earlier this week.

"I still think it is one of the most ridiculous ideas in the world of football because now we finish a season where [some] players have played more than 70 games, easily - club games 63 or 64, plus internationals - and then go direct to 75, which is pretty mad and we continue with Nations League games because we have to play them [when] there is no tournament, who cares we play four, five or six games with the national teams... "So that is the reason because I would prefer UEFA take more money from the Champions League final and kick out the Nations League again.
