Gerrard: Liverpool fans love Coutinho. But Barcelona will try again

Liverpool U18 coach Steven Gerrard says they know Barcelona will try again for Philippe Coutinho.

Gerrard accepts it will be a constant battle to keep hold of the Brazil international.

On BT Sport, Gerrard was pressed as to how Liverpool can keep Coutinho long-term and responded: “Pray!

“Listen, he's South American, his dream is to go to Barcelona.

“I think the key in this situation is do Barcelona come back? Or are they upset that he hasn't come?

Liverpool will want to keep him for a long, long time, there's no doubt about that.

“They love him. Possibly (it would be in the summer if Barcelona came back)."
