Paulinho, Andres Iniesta, Ivan Rakitic… and everybody else who’s ever played for Barca, eat your heart out…
Zico thinks Phil should stay at Liverpool!
The most tapped up player on the planet, Coutinho, has been urged to stay at Liverpool by Brazilian legend Zico!
EOTK friend @BrazilStat tweeted the news today, following an absolute avalanche of flirty comments from Barcelona’s current roster.

This genuinely surprises us. A few days back, Paulinho, voted Spurs worst ever defender, was quoted as saying Liverpool’s no.10 is already looking for houses in Barcelona.
It’s the latest in a very long line of what we can only describe us ‘public tapping up’…
Barca are without doubt the most shameless club when it comes to openly discussing potential signings, so we’re very glad Zico has backed Coutinho’s parent club.
We’re obviously aware Liverpool may let Phil go in the summer, but we’re pretty sure it’s going to be for a world record fee.
Right now, he’s wearing Liverpool’s captain’s armband in the absence of Jordan Henderson and putting in Man of the Match performances every week.
Barca can pay up or bugger off.
