LIVERPOOL fans travelling via coach back to Warrington from Madrid say they ‘supped Madrid dry’ during their time in the Spanish capital.

Andy Tart joined fellow supporters from Orford, Padgate and Penketh on the 70-hour round journey to Madrid to watch the Reds claim their sixth European title against Tottenham on Saturday.

And despite the long trip there and back, they all said it was a journey worth doing.

“The whole weekend has just a brilliant experience,” he said.

“It took us 33 hours to get to Madrid by coach and about 36 hours to get back, but it has definitely been worth it.

“None of us have had a wash in days and I think we’ve supped Madrid dry.”

Liverpool supporters flocked to Madrid in numbers, with more than 70,000 making the trip to soak up the atmosphere and cheer their team on, and Andy said they all had a great time.

“There has been no trouble at all, and all the fans have been great,” he continued.

“It was a bit expensive though with most places charging 10€ a pint, but that is what we expected before we set off.

“We did manage to find a few places charging 7€ and we all just had a great time.”

And after managing to secure a place on the coach to Spain, he said it was an easy decision to make to support his beloved Reds.

“We managed to get a reasonably cheap coach down to Madrid which cost us £150 each so it was a no brainer really.

“There were roughly 50 fans on the coach and about 35 of them were from Warrington and a few from Skelmersdale, so the town had a good following in Madrid.

“It was a shame to miss the homecoming parade, but like when we went to Istanbul in 2005, I’m definitely glad we decided to go.”
