Liverpool fans who bought Luis Suarez shirts will not have their money refunded

Supporters left furious with Uruguayan striker expected to leave in the coming weeks

Liverpool fans who shelled out money to have Luis Suarez's name on the back of their replica shirts will not have their money refunded.

The Liverpool Echo report that a club source has confirmed that no automatic refunds will be given to fans who have spent money having 'Suarez 7' printed.

An adult short sleeve shirt with the extra printing on the official Liverpool website store will set supporters back £64.99, while it costs £56.99 for youth sizes, without delivery.

Suarez, who has had his appeal to reduce the severity of the ban for biting Giorgio Chiellini rejected, has left Liverpool in a blockbuster move to Barcelona.

With the season starting in August, many fans have been left furious after already making their purchase.

Club sources have told the Echo say they have sympathy for fans in this position, but say shirts become non-refundable when they are personalised.
