If you received a Philippe Coutinho Liverpool for Christmas, don’t worry.
The Brazilian barely hanging around at Liverpool for the Twelfth Night, don’t go out and burn it just yet.
The club are offering a full refund for all Coutinho shirts for this season.
Once the move has been made official, fans can exchange their 2017/18 replica shirts for a £50 voucher.
Unfortunately, it was too late for this guy and his anger had already got the better of him.
The twinkletoe’d midfielder finally moved to Barcelona for a British transfer record of £142million after an extended summer pursuit.
He has a £355million release clause and joins the Spanish giants on a five and a half year deal.
The little magician is due to be unveiled at the Nou Camp and will slot in perfectly with Lionel Messi and co once he settles in.
It is a nice touch from Liverpool that they will give the fans the money back for a shirt that shouold have lasted a whole season.
The merchandise team clearly didn’t think he was going to be leaving this month as they made him the January star for the Liverpool Calendar.

Exchange them and get a shirt bearing the name of the most important Brazilian at Liverpool.
