Jamie Carragher proud of Liverpool following ticket price U-turn

Jamie Carragher has revealed his sense of pride in his former club after Liverpool’s owners reversed their decision to increase ticket prices from next season.

“When I heard that Liverpool’s owners had taken the decision to freeze ticket prices for the next two seasons, as well as apologising for the idea of wanting to sell seats for £77, I felt proud of my club once again,” Carragher said in his Daily Mail column.

The Reds legend, who was part of the estimated 10,000-strong walkout from Anfield last Saturday, previously stated that the protest was for the benefit of all football fans.

“The supporters started something big on Saturday when walking out of Anfield in the 77th minute and things snowballed to such an extent that Fenway Sports Group (FSG) realised they had to make urgent corrections.

“It wasn’t nice to see but they were standing up for fans across the country, not just themselves. Nobody wants to see stadiums emptying on a regular basis and hopefully that prospect has now finished.”
