Coutinho forced to wear kids-sized Bayern Bundesliga shirts

Bayern Munich's technical supplier, Adidas, delivered the Bavarian side with the full allocation of 2019-20 season shirts before Coutinho joined in the summer.

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich were supplied with the full allocation of domestic league playing kit at the start of the 2019-20 campaign before Brazilian Philippe Coutinho made his loan move from FC Barcelona last August.

With none of the 'authentic dri-fit player issue' shirts fitting the 167cm tall 27-year-old, the player has been forced to wear a 176cm children's shirt (the biggest of the smaller sizes before the XS size in the adult sizing range).

The problem only persists with the Bundesliga kit with Adidas now working on a home shirt which he can use for the second half of the campaign.
