Liverpool make decision on Philippe Coutinho Champions League medal

Liverpool have decided to give Philippe Coutinho a medal following Liverpool’s Champions League final against Real Madrid.

The Brazilian is one of 25 players who have featured for the Reds in Europe this season, reports the Liverpool Echo.

However, he quit Anfield in January in a £142million move to Barcelona as Kop chiefs eventually allowed the star to move on after months of speculation.

Having played for the Reds earlier in the competition, he wasn’t eligible to feature for Barca in the knockout stages.

UEFA regulations state that the Champions League winners are given 40 gold medals and the runners-up are handed 30 silver medals after each final. Distributing them is at each club’s discretion.

The former Inter Milan playmaker scored five goals in his five Champions League appearances for the Reds, including a hat-trick against Spartak Moscow when he captained the side in the final group game at Anfield back in December.

Jurgen Klopp has always insisted he didn’t bear a grudge against Coutinho for pursuing the move to Barcelona and a medal will be dispatched to Catalonia.
