Manchester United fans have reacted with outrage at the cost of tickets to see their UEFA Europa League tie with FC Midtjylland in February.

Fans of Louis van Gaal's side are being asked to pay £71 for a ticket to the away leg, compared to the £22 Southampton fans were charged for their qualifier in August.

Midtjylland's commercial director Jacob Jorgensen has attempted to justify the £49 price hike, telling the Manchester Evening News (via the Mirror):

I can understand that it's expensive for a United fan to see FC Midtjylland and that they are angry themselves. But that's how it is.

We are in competition with Manchester United to move forward, and their huge turnover and many TV money is so much greater than ours. I think we put up a very fair price, we could easily get sold out for the match, we took 1500-2000 kroner per ticket.

United were drawn to face the Danish side in Europa League round of 32 after finishing third in their UEFA Champions League group.
