Published on: 03 June 2017

Liverpool legend Ian Rush is confident Philippe Coutinho will resist a move to Barcelona to summer.

The Brazilian has been on the radar of the Catalan club for quite some time, and they are expected to make a move for the forward in the summer.

"He's a quality player and he can play for any team in the world the way he played this year, said Rush to AS.

"But if you're in the Champions League then I would expect him to stay.

"It's another experience for him. There's a time and place for everything and Coutinho wants to play in the Champions League because he's a champion – but Liverpool will give him the chance to do that.

"I am pretty certain he will stay even though there are rumours about everything. The fans want him to stay."
