Midtjylland board member Claus Steinlein says that Manchester United fans should think themselves lucky that they are only charging £71 for tickets for their Europa League clash.
Supporters travelling to Denmark have been incensed by a ticket price that is over three times more than the £22 they charged Southampton fans earlier in the season.

“Generally speaking you could say that we could have sold more than 50,000 tickets for this game,” said Steinlein. “So if you look at supply and demand perhaps the price should have been even higher.
“That’s the cost of watching a game like this. So I actually believe that we have been very fair and we certainly haven’t had any problems selling the tickets.
“Normally we have journalists criticise us for not making enough money and when we put the prices up the same journalists criticise us for making too much.
“We’ll have a sold-out stadium and an excellent setting. That’s what players, coaches, all of the club and all of our region is looking forward to.
“It’s going to be a day to celebrate so let’s rather focus our energy on that.”
