Pic: This young Liverpool fan’s banner for Coutinho during Palace win will warm the cockles of your heart

Loyalty has become secondary to things like money and fame in modern day football. Gone are the days when we had young players aspiring to be a one-club legends like Gerrard, Lampard, Scholes and Totti.

The Coutinho saga is a big example of this shift in player choices. The Brazilian starlet is a wanted name in the Barcelona camp and the Catalan club has been putting in bid after bid to secure his signature. The former Inter Milan man has now handed in a transfer request and displayed his desire to leave the Merseyside club.

Seeing such an integral part of the team turn his back at a crucial time for the club has especially hurt the fans.

Despite the heartbreak, a young Liverpool fan displayed his emotions about Coutinho through a banner which read “Please Stay Coutinho, My Hero” in the Merseyside club’s  1-0 victory against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

One can only hope that Coutinho sees this little lad’s banner and reconsider his decision to leave.
