Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is not worried about the low ticket allocation for the Europa League final and urges fans to head to the city of Basel anyway.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has told supporters that they should flock to the city of Basel even if they cannot get a ticket to the Europa League final after UEFA announced allocation at St Jakob-Park.

The Reds have been given 10,236 tickets for the match on May 18 in a stadium that holds 35,000 seats.

Despite the low number, Klopp is not concerned and has urged Liverpool's following to head to the Swiss city anyway.

"It is a wonderful opportunity for all of us to play this final but we cannot change the stadium so we cannot think about this," Klopp told reporters in Friday's press conference. "I have been to Basel one or two times, it is a wonderful stadium and a wonderful city.

"It is even worth going there without having a ticket for the game to be around the stadium and enjoy yourself and enjoy life as a Liverpool supporter and that's what we should so and not worry or think about the size of the stadium or tickets you can get."

Liverpool booked a spot in the final with Sevilla with a 3-1 aggregate win over Villarreal last night.
