There has been no love lost between Liverpool and Everton ever since the inception of the Merseyside Derby: and it still is one of the most highly anticipated fixtures on the English football calendar.
Despite both clubs being on opposite ends of the silverware spectrum, it still happens to be a very prestigious derby with a lot more than bragging rights at stake.
The red and the blue halves of Merseyside have always wanted nothing to do with each other, which is why it left an eagle-eyed fan deeply perplexed when he found Nike’s new Liverpool home shirt for the 2020/21 season at the Everton club store, seemingly given for printing of name and number on the back of the shirt.
Football fans on Twitter speculated that the excessively high prices at Reds’ store probably led few Liverpool fans to get the name and number printed at the Everton store, for a comparatively lighter pocket pinch.
The Champions of England have recently signed a new shirt sponsor deal with athletic gear giants Nike worth £70m-a year starting from this season onwards, and that might as well be the reason for the hike in printing rates at the Liverpool club store.
