In an interview with Express, Liverpool star John Barnes talked about the transfer rumors of Mane. He said: "I hope Mane will stay in Liverpool for a long time and not repeat the mistakes of Coutinho."
Barnes said in the interview: "Coutinho would have become one of the team's greatest players, but he left after 5 years."
"The only way for players to be seen as great players on the team is to stay long enough."
"I hope Mane can do this. He has been great since he moved from Southampton in 2016."
