A group of Liverpool supporters chose to cross the English Channel by speedboat to watch their side play the Champions League final against Real Madrid after Easyjet canceled the flight to the French capital.
“My boy’s pals Patrick, Adam and Tom Dring, who are from Huyton, had their EasyJet flight canceled so their dad rushed them to Heathrow to try and get a flight but there was nothing,” OToole told the Liverpool Echo.
“They flew to Jersey at the last minute and they met us and asked us to take them to France. We felt sorry for the youngsters so we had to do something.”
Liverpool have been unbeaten since March, lost just three games all season and have already won two domestic cups, but they face Real Madrid in the Champions League final on Saturday under pressure to avoid finishing the campaign as almost men .
The match, a rematch of the 2018 final, was scheduled for the Gazprom Arena in Saint Petersburg, but was moved to the Stade de France after its neighbor Russia invaded on February 24.
Liverpool will be hoping for a third trophy this season after lifting the League Cup and FA Cup, while Real are looking to add to their La Liga triumph and clinch a record 14th Champions League crown.
After spending the latter part of the season boasting a unique four-fold, they face the prospect of a potential double disappointment after missing out on the Premier League title to Manchester City by a single point on the final day.
