Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Gifts Champions League Final Tickets To Liverpool Fans In Beautiful Gesture

In a class gesture, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has gifted Champions League final tickets to a pair of die-hard Liverpool supporters.

Cast your mind back to the quarter-final second leg against Manchester City, Oxlade-Chamberlain presented his match shirt to a father and son.

The same pair were unable to land a ticket for the Champions League showpiece in Kiev, Ukraine.

Liverpool were allocated just 16,626 tickets for the game at NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium, which holds around 70,000 fans.

So, naturally, plenty of Liverpool fans were left without a match day ticket.

Including Joe Jaggar.

But after hearing about his unsuccessful attempt at obtaining tickets, Oxlade-Chamberlain immediately reached out.

"When got wind that me and Bobbi were struggling for tickets, he went out of his way to get us a pair, beyond words," Joe posted on Twitter.

Great touch, Alex.

Liverpool fans loved his gesture.

After suffering a knee injury against AS Roma in the Champions League semi-final, Oxlade-Chamberlain's season was cruelly cut short. Not to mention being ruled of the World Cup.

He's unlikely to play again until November after undergoing successful knee surgery.

Get well soon, 'Ox'.
