Desperate Liverpool fans chartered a speedboat to reach Paris to watch Champions League final, after missing a flight. A group of thirteen Liverpool fans hired a speedboat in their bid to reach France in time for Champions League Final on Saturday.

The fans were forced to resort t this desperate measure after their easyJet flight which was supposed to ferry them to the France was cancelled.

After they were turned away from John Lennon Airport in Liverpool where they were supposed to board a 4am flight, the two of the fans, Adam and Tom Dring, flew to Heathrow to try to get another flight.

They failed in their attempt to get a flight from Heathrow also, so they called family friend Paddy O’Toole who lives in Jersey.

According to a report in the Liverpool Echo O’Toole then contacted a friend who runs a boat chartering firm called La Mourier on the island.

The Liverpool nicknamed Reds will be taking on Real Madrid, who are 13 time winner, at the Stade de France on Saturday.

Liverpool and Real Madrid meet in the Champions League final in Paris on Saturday, with Jurgen Klopp’s side aiming to end the season with a trophy treble while the Spanish giants will look to Karim Benzema to inspire them to a 14th European Cup victory.

A crowd of 80,000 will pack into the Stade de France for the 9:00pm (1900 GMT) kickoff, as Liverpool and Real compete for European club football’s most prestigious prize for the second time in five years.

The final promises to be a fitting climax to the European season, with Liverpoollooking to win a second Champions League in four seasons just days after they narrowly lost out to Manchester City in the Premier League title race. They have already won the English League Cup and FA Cup.
