Most Liverpool fans will have been pretty upset about Philippe Coutinho’s recent transfer to Barcelona.

Boylesports announced that up and down the country, that they would offer Liverpool fans free bets in return for any redundant Philippe Coutinho shirts handed in. This was after the bookmaker was inundated with disgruntled Reds fans following the transfer. Anyone wanting to trade in their shirt had until the close of business on Wednesday, January 10th to do so.
All of the jerseys collected by Boylesports will be passed on as charity donations.
Lawrence Lyons, Spokesperson for Boylesports commented: ” Seeing so many disgruntled Reds around we thought what better way to cheer them up than with free bets, especially after some may have just received their Coutinho 10 jerseys as Christmas presents, mere weeks before he jumped ship. ”
He added: ” Punters have until close of business on Wednesday to call into their local Boylesports shop to trade in their Liverpool Coutinho shirts and we will reimburse them with a €20 free bet and put the unwanted jerseys to good use by donating them to charity.”
