Everyone's noticed the same thing about Barcelona's unveiling photo of Coutinho
Coutinho to Barca. BIG NEWS.
After Neymar's colossal and game-changing move to PSG over the summer, this is the biggest transfer deal in the history of football. It's huge, it is full of sub-plots and fascinating implications, and there's so much to talk about.
How will Coutinho settle in at Camp Nou? Is he really the natural successor to Andreas Iniesta? Who will Liverpool bring in to replace him? What does it say about Liverpool as a European superpower? There are more angles than a protractor.
When Barca eventually went official with images of the Brazilian playmaker in club colours with a beaming smile, it pretty much broke the internet. Catalan supporters were absolutely loving it, whilst Scousers were holding back the tears.
But there was a specific detail that had everyone talking. Not Coutinho's unabashed joy, nor his inventive hand gestures. Not even the fact he was all on his lonesome, without a proud manager or board member stood by his side.
No, it was his trendy new Blaugrana jacket. It seems football fashionistas everywhere were more impressed with his Nike windbreaker than the record-breaking player himself. And we can kind of understand - very smart it is too, in a retro 90s sort of way.
Apparently it's available for a princely £65 from all good sports retailers (and some bad ones too)...
