Following on the announcement that new signing Mohamed Salah receiving the shirt number 11, Liverpool released a statement on the website regarding Firmino's shirt number switch and offers their supporters the opportunity to have them personally signed by the Brazilian.

"As a gesture to those fans who have already purchased the official 2017-18 jersey with Firmino's name and number 11 on the back, Roberto would like to offer supporters the opportunity to have them personally signed by him. All official 2017-18 season shirts with ‘Firmino 11’ printed on them should be sent to Anfield by August 18, 2017 with a stamped self-addressed envelope big enough to contain your jersey. It will then be signed by Firmino and returned using the self-addressed envelope."
