Liverpool FC fans who had Luis Suarez’s name printed on their 2014/15 shirts are not entitled to a refund – even if he leaves the club before the season begins.
The Uruguayan striker is widely expected to sign for Barcelona for £75m.
But many fans have already forked out to have the prolific goalscorer’s name printed on their shirts ahead of the new season, which kicks off in August.
Club sources, however, say there will be no automatic refunds if Suarez, 27, leaves for the Catalans before then.
One dad blasted the club’s decision after his nine-year-old son, Edward, spent nearly £80 of his birthday money on a Suarez shirt.
Joe Brice said: “It now looks extremely likely that he will be sold pre-season, probably to Barcelona.
“I contacted Liverpool to ask if they would be prepared to exchange the shirt for another named player if he is sold.
“Liverpool have refused, should this happen, to exchange the shirt (for one) with the name of a player who’ll actually be playing for them in 2014/15. This represents corporate greed at its very worst.
“They are prepared to make financial gain from Suarez by selling shirts with his name on, despite then selling him and not recompensing those supporters such as my son.”
