Bournemouth’s Harry Wilson explains why he wore Liverpool coat in stand

Harry Wilson has moved to explain why he was spotted in the stands at Anfield wearing a Liverpool coat on Saturday.

The midfielder returned to his parent club with loan side Bournemouth but was ineligible to play any part in the fixture.

Bournemouth were unfortunate to come away from the fixture with nothing to show for their efforts, having led early on and seeing Ryan Fraser's shot cleared off the line.

But despite their frustration at the result, it seems Bournemouth fans took more of an issue with Wilson over coatgate.

Wilson was quick to address the problem, taking to social media after the match to put across his side of the story.

"Fantastic effort from the boys yesterday and brilliant backing from the travelling Bournemouth fans," Wilson tweeted. "Deserved more from the game but we keep fighting.

"I'm aware TV footage of me in an LFC coat has angered a few people.

"Honestly, it was nothing more than I was cold and a member of the LFC staff offered me a jacket in a moment I couldn't disturb the Bournemouth guys working the game.

"Can't wait for next Saturday to be back playing."

Wilson is due to remain on loan with the Cherries until the end of the current season before possible involvement with Wales at Euro 2020 ahead of a return to Liverpool.

Whether the 22-year-old starts next season with the Premier League champions-elect is another question however.

He told BT Sport: “I feel I’ve got that decision to make in the summer.
