UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has hit back at Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp over his criticism of the governing body's ticket allocation and pricing for the upcoming Champions League final in Paris.

That means almost half of the available tickets will be going elsewhere, including to fans of other clubs who applied to UEFA for tickets, and to sponsors and corporate partners.

Once again UEFA's approach to ticket pricing has come in for criticism, too, with fans set to be charged prices of up to £579 for category A tickets, £411 for category B, £126 for category C and £50 for category D. Last week, Klopp scathing criticised UEFA's treatment of fans.

'When you see the ticket prices and the amount of tickets you get, wow,' Klopp said.

More: Liverpool FC Ceferin revealed at a press conference in Vienna that he called Klopp in order to try and allay the Liverpool manager's concerns, and claimed that the high ticket prices were the fault of clubs themselves.

Ceferin also sort to address criticism of the fact that both clubs combined have only received around half of the total number of tickets available, saying that sponsor companies who pay high annual fees deserve access over fans due to contractual obligations.

Some tickets go to the market, some tickets go to the fans and some go to the partners.
