Coutinho is keen on becoming one of the all-time Liverpool greats.

Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho has revealed he would like to be a legend for the club after signing a new five-year deal. The 24-year-old midfield maestro, who joined the Merseyside club back in 2013, was recently linked with a move to La Liga giants Barcelona before he put pen to paper on a deal that extends his stay at Anfield until 2022. "I understand what Liverpool means. We can say [Kenny] Dalglish, [Ian] Rush, [Alan] Hansen, [Graeme] Souness, [Luis] Suarez, [Steven] Gerrard. I've been here quite a few years already, it's not like I am new. I understand," he told The Daily Mail.
