A LIVERPOOL fan has bagged an old banger for just €45 to get to Madrid after refusing to pay out for expensive flights.
Youtuber Simon Wilson, has decided to drive the Skoda down to Madrid after he got a ticket to the final through his season ticket.
Simon has claimed a flight would have set him back around €900.
“I rang up my brother, Ben Wilson, and asked him how much was the cheapest car we could get.
“When he told me I was like ‘just buy it now, we will worry about it afterwards’,” explained Simon.
The Liverpool fan has only just set out on the road trip but is already experiencing engine trouble.
Simon said: “Worst case scenario we will jump on the train and make it happen – there’s no way I won’t be there.”
