Klopp reveals family were caught up in CL final chaos

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed some of his family were caught up in the chaos prior to the Champions League final in Paris.

The showpiece match between Liverpool and Real Madrid at the Stade de France in May was overshadowed by serious problems surrounding the stadium.

Dangerous crushes formed as a result of access issues and many fans were tear-gassed or pepper-sprayed by police.

Some of Klopp's relatives experienced the trouble first-hand, but they did not tell the German until afterwards.

"I met only a few [people] who were lucky," Klopp told the club's website.

All the rest I met - my family included - had massive struggles outside. I think it is clear it was massively mis-organised. Whoever was responsible was not prepared for that.

"My family sent me messages before the game, 'We are in the stadium, good luck' and all these kinds of things - but they were not. These kind of necessary lies you receive.
