Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Gives Away Champions League Final Tickets to Liverpool Fans

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Gives Away Champions League Final Tickets to Liverpool Fans

Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has proven himself to be one of the nicest men in football at the moment after giving tickets away for his side’s Champions League final later this month.

The England international has played a crucial role in the Reds reaching the showpiece match against Real Madrid in Kiev, and scored a memorable goal in the quarter-finals against Manchester City.

But a horribly timed knee injury during the semi-final first-leg against Roma has ruled Chamberlain out of the match, but that doesn’t appear to have left the former Arsenal player in a sour mood.

Remarkably, Liverpool were allocated just 16,626 tickets for the game at Olimpiyskiy Stadium by UEFA, despite the overall capacity standing at around 70,000, so, naturally, plenty of Liverpool fans were left without a match day ticket.

Including Twitter user Joe Jaggar.

But after hearing about his unsuccessful attempt at obtaining tickets, Oxlade-Chamberlain immediately reached out and sorted the problem – no questions asked:

He didn’t have to go out of his way to help a stranger out, but he did, and that’s perhaps what separates The Ox from some of his peers.
