Liverpool ace Sadio Mane: Important for everyone that Coutinho stayed

Liverpool ace Sadio Mane says it was critical they kept hold of teammate Philippe Coutinho from the clutches of Barcelona.

Mane, who is currently serving a suspension for his red card against Manchester City, insists that it was crucial for Liverpool to keep hold of Coutinho this summer.

“It was not only important to me, but also to the whole club, that Phil is staying here," Mane told ESPNFC.

“He is one of our best players, an important player, and we are happy to see him stay with us."
