Responding to a tweet by journalist and TV presenter Adriano Del Monte, many Liverpool fans have rightfully fumed over his statement after he questioned the club’s integrity on social media regarding the club’s stance on reimbursing Atletico Madrid fans who couldn’t make it to the Anfield clash last month.
According to an original report by Spanish outlet AS, the La Liga outfit eventually gave money back to 290 would-be travelling fans who couldn’t make it to Anfield due to growing pandemic fears – with the piece also revealing that the Reds ‘refused’ to contribute to the refund.
The 3-2 loss was a night to forget for our side, with keeper Adrian being one of the sole reasons why Jurgen Klopp’s side fell short of a memorable aggregate comeback after falling 1-0 in the first leg.
Should Liverpool have reimbursed the 290 Atletico fans?
Now, with recent events clouding football and almost forcing our club to take drastic measures off the pitch, presenter Del Monte has saw fit to question our integrity again after we didn’t see the merit in reimbursing opposition supporters who decided not to travel for safety reasons.
Arguably, many Reds who have fumed at the journalist’s tweet in response are right to do so – delivering a range of intriguing opinions on the matter, here’s what they had to say on social media.
None of them should have be allowed over. Don’t blame LFC,blame greedy UEFA

Liverpool don’t have an obligation to pay them back. Wasn’t LFC decision to tell them not to travel, if any concern, it’s uefa job it postpone. Kinda like anything really. The argument, you have the money is worthless. The hate is because it’s Liverpool, that’s it.
