Girlfriends & Family Members Of Liverpool & Real Madrid Players Told To Keep Off The Field

UEFA has told Real Madrid and Liverpool players not to invite their girlfriends or family members onto the pitch after the Champions League final.

It has become commonplace in recent years for players to be joined on the field by loved ones after cup finals or at the end of a season.

For example, multiple Liverpool players were accompanied by their partners and children as they took a lap of honor at Anfield last weekend following their final Premier League game of the season.
