It's been nearly three years since Philippe Coutinho left Liverpool for Barcelona, but the Brazilian still carries a memento from his time with the Premier League champions with him in the Catalan capital.
The midfielder swapped Anfield for the Nou Camp in January 2018 in a deal worth a whopping £106million.
When most players leave a club, they tend to leave behind everything that reminds them of their former side.
Coutinho, however, seemingly hasn't got the memo, with the former Bayern Munich loanee still sporting a certain item that he used daily during his time on Merseyside.
What's the item? You may ask. It's not a t-shirt or any other type of apparel. No, Coutinho has kept the same license plate he used to have when he lived in England.
Coutinho's use of his old license plate, which ends in LFC, was spotted by an eagle-eyed Reds fan after a Tik Tok video of the 28-year-old driving a jet black BMW G wagon started doing the rounds on social media.
It's unclear why Coutinho hasn't adopted a new licence plate for his ride, although one would've thought he would've done so by now.
Perhaps he hasn't changed it because he still has fond memories of his time with the Merseysiders, who he made 201 appearances and scored 54 goals for.
Many of the Anfield faithful have similar memories of the midfielder and would take him back in a heartbeat, including former Kop star John Aldridge.
“I think Liverpool should do all they can to bring him back to Anfield,” Aldridge told the Sunday World in June.
“I know there will be some fans out there who might be surprised by my call for Liverpool’s owners to hand Coutinho a route back to Anfield.
