Bournemouth winger Harry Wilson explains why he wore a Liverpool coat in the Anfield stands
Harry Wilson explained why he wore a Liverpool jacket in the Anfield stands on Saturday.
The 22-year-old, currently on a season-long loan at Bournemouth, was not eligible to play against his parent club in the 2-1 loss.
Liverpool fans loved it, but Bournemouth fans were not happy with Wilson’s decision.
Wilson chose to comment on the situation, stating that he was simply given a jacket after he got cold.
“I know that TV images of me in an LFC coat irritated a few people,” Wilson wrote.
“Honestly it was nothing more than I was cold and a member of the LFC staff gave me a jacket in an instant I couldn’t bother the guys from Bournemouth who were working the game.
“I can’t wait until next Saturday is back in the game.”
Wilson has been extremely impressive for the Cherries this season, scoring seven goals in the 23 Premier League appearances he has made for Eddie Howe’s side.
He is on his fourth loan away from Liverpool and when the season is over and dusted off Wilson is well aware he has a difficult decision to make.
“I feel like I have to make that decision this summer. I think my last two years of loans have been good.” he told BT Sport ahead of Saturday’s game.
“This one was also positive for me. I’m finally in the Premier League, that’s what I’ve been working towards.
“In the summer I will be focusing on Wales, but once that is done I think I might have a decision to make.”
