Liverpool facing same problems as Manchester United with Club World Cup badge on kit, but may wear it for one Premier League game

A request to the governing body was made by the club and The Telegraph say it has been successful, with the Wolves match on 29 December being the game they can wear it.

UEFA allow Liverpool to wear the badge – received by beating Flamengo 1-0 – in Champions League matches this season and next.

However, the Premier League only allow charitable messaging to be added to shirts over the course of a season with rules stating proposed changes have to be ratified by their board.

Liverpool’s next European game is not until 18 February when they play Atletico Madrid in the last 16 of the Champions League.

Real Madrid were permitted by LaLiga to wear the badge when they won the Club World Cup and it is thought Liverpool pointed out it shows English clubs in a good light, having become only the second Premier League team to win the competition.

But the organisation have put their foot down before, in 2008, when Manchester United won the Club World Cup.
