WHITE FLASH 3.
(SOUNDBITE) (English) JUERGEN KLOPP, LIVERPOOL MANAGER ON EUROPA LEAGUE FINAL VENUE IN BAKU SAYING: "I think with Madrid, obviously it is unbelievably expensive but at least it is not in another part of the world, but going to Baku for the Europa League final is really funny.
These guys who make the decisions I don't know what they have for breakfast really.
'How can you do it?
Last year we go to Kiev which is a wonderful city but that a Russian team, or one from that part of the world, will be involved is not really likely.
You go there and now Madrid has to prepare for 200,000 English fans, if Ajax would get there then there would be Dutch fans there.
Baku I have no clue how to get there or if there is any regular flight at all.
In these decisions people must be a much more sensible and reasonable.
It is irresponsible, I don't know how they do it." STORY: Juergen Klopp has hit out at the 'irresponsible' decision to host this season's Europa League final between Arsenal and Chelsea at Baku's Olympic Stadium.
Although Liverpool fans are experiencing their own struggles to get to Madrid for the Champions League final, Klopp insists he has even greater sympathy for supporters of Arsenal and Chelsea who will have to make a near 6,000-mile round trip to Azerbaijan, assuming they can secure a ticket given both clubs have only been allocated 6,000 each by UEFA.
