Saga Continues - Coutinho Switches Kits During Match - Child's Size Replica & Authentic

Thursday, 19 December 2019
Update 2: The Coutinho shirt saga continues - he now switched shirts during half-time. In the first half against Freiburg, he was wearing the replica jersey. When he was substituted right before the end, he was wearing the authentic version. Thanks to our follower Christoph for the spot.



Update: Following on our report on Coutinho wearing the replica version of the FC Bayern Munich 2019-20 home kit, more details have been revealed. In fact, Coutinho is not only wearing a replica kit - he is even wearing the Kids' version of the shirt in Size 176. But why?



Normally all FC Bayern Munich professionals play in the "Authentic" version of the jersey. However, the club orders many of these jersey sets long before the first round starts. For late summer newcomers - such as Ivan Perisic, Mickael Cuisance and Philippe Coutinho - it was then only possible to reorder at short notice.



Coutinho also played the first home games for Bavaria in the red "Authentic" jersey, but noticed at the kit man that this version with a tight cut didn't fit him very well. So the Bavarians resorted to the "Replica"-Line of the home jersey from the fanshop - this version obviously fitted the Brazilian better.

Therefore, the 1.72 meter Brazilian will be wearing the version from the fan shop until the end of the year - and that in child size 176 for "only" 70 Euro.

Against Wolfsburg Coutinho will probably be the last time in his fan shirt - FC Bayern has already ordered new jersey sets for the second half of the season, then with the right size for Coutinho.
