Philippe Coutinho is in line to collect a Champions League winner’s medal – should Liverpool conquer Europe this season.
The Reds are through to the last four of the elite competition after thrashing Premier League champions-elect Manchester City 5-1 on aggregate.
It means they are just three games away from getting their hands on the coveted trophy, 13 years after their dramatic win against AC Milan in Istanbul.
But even though he’s not at Anfield any longer, Coutinho could yet end up joining the likes of Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino by landing a gold medal in May.
The Brazilian joined Barcelona in January but was ineligible to play in Europe after appearing for Liverpool earlier in the season.
It means he could get his hands on a shiny gold medal if the Reds end up triumphing.
Coutinho played five out of the six games in the group stages, scoring five goals – including a magnificent hat-trick in the 7-0 win over Spartak Moscow.
However, the final word will be with Jurgen Klopp as he looks to get his side mentally prepared for the semis.
Uefa guidelines state that the winning team will be given 40 gold medals, with the runners-up earning 40 silver medals.
It is then up to the clubs to decide who should get one, and Coutinho is sure to be keeping his fingers crossed for Liverpool after seeing new side Barcelona crash out in the quarter-finals to Roma.
