Liverpool offer voucher for fans who bought new Coutinho shirts

Liverpool will give you £50 if you bought a new Coutinho shirt this season.

The first thing Liverpool will do after earning £142 million from selling Philippe Coutinho is put a little money back in the pockets of some fans.

In the wake of Coutinho’s departure to Barcelona on Saturday, his former club said they would offer a £50 voucher to those who invested in this season’s shirt with the Brazilians’s name and number on the back.

A Liverpool statement said: “The offer — which applies to all shirts purchased in official club outlets and via the official LFC website — follows today’s announcement that Coutinho will join FC Barcelona and reflects the exceptional circumstances behind the player’s departure.”

At £50 a pop, Liverpool would need to accept 2,840,000 shirts to equal their windfall from the Coutinho sale.

The voucher will be enough to buy a new Liverpool shirt without a name and number on the back, which only seems appropriate.

Alternatively, one could also buy five of Liverpool’s official 2018 calendar — which ironically features Coutinho on the page for January, thereby preserving the date of his departure for posterity.
