Joe Gomez will take the Liverpool No.2 shirt for the 2022-23 season.

The defender has worn No.12 since joining the Reds from Charlton Athletic seven years ago but will now change number ahead of the forthcoming campaign, starting with Saturday’s FA Community Shield encounter with Manchester City.

As a gesture to those who have already purchased through official club stores a 2022-23 replica shirt printed with ‘Gomez 12’, Joe will personally reimburse fans by way of a like-for-like exchange for a ‘Gomez 2’ jersey.

Details on how to exchange Gomez jerseys via LFC club stores will follow.
