Philippe Coutinho might be that one decisive player who has filled a massive void in Liverpool’s midfield line-up, but it appears that an even larger one fill up his boot now.
The midfielder started Liverpool’s game against Crystal Palace yesterday with an unusually big hole cut out in the heel of his right boot.
While nothing like this has been seen before, it is speculated that the reason Coutinho might have subjected his boot to this is to prevent a blister on his foot from bothering him much.
While a hole in the boot might have helped Coutinho score a goal against Palace, it was clearly not enough as Liverpool suffered a major setback to their top-four campaign with a 1-2 loss.
