Rhian Brewster put pen to paper on a new Liverpool deal on Tuesday night – but it was the ink people are talking about, not just just the contract.
Tattoo fails have been a feature of the World Cup with over-excited fans jumping the gun but it was one after the event which has led to some red faces on Merseyside.
Brewster has just turned 18 and to celebrate his birthday he did what many footballers do and booked himself in to the best tattoo parlour in the area.
After taking advice on where to go, he didn’t check on the artist’s qualifications in spelling.
The teenager striker posed for pictures to celebrate his five-year deal with some flashy publicity shots – but he soon wished he hadn’t!
The tattoo on his left wrist reads ‘your hate makes me unstoppable’. Well, that’s what it’s supposed to read.
Brewster’s tattoo artist dropped the ball. The word ‘unstoppable’ is spelt with only one ‘p’ – and he hadn’t noticed.
Needless to say eagle-eyed social media users soon spotted the unfortunate error and brought it to everyone’s attention.
Brewster was one of England’s U17 World Cup stars, firing the Three Lions to glory in India last October.
“I’m looking forward to getting back fit and making some appearances,” said the striker, who has battled injury since January.
“I just wanted the opportunity to make it at Liverpool. Of course you have to look elsewhere sometimes and maybe somewhere else is a better place for you.
“I think Liverpool is the place for me. I can’t wait to get started and get back fit.”
