Former Wales footballer Robbie Savage believes that most Premier League footballers do not know how much match tickets cost.

Former Wales footballer Robbie Savage has claimed that most top-level players do not know how much fans pay to support their teams.

BBC Sport's latest Price of Football survey was published this week, revealing that the average price of the cheapest tickets across English football has increased at almost twice the rate of the cost of living since 2011.

Savage wrote in a BBC Sport column: "To be completely honest, during my 20-year playing career, I never once thought about how much it was costing fans to go to games.

"The truth is that most Premier League players live in a bubble. If you ask most of them what a ticket costs, they would not have a clue."

The study also found that the average price of the cheapest matchday ticket in the top four divisions of English football is up 4.4% from 2013.
