Barcelona calling? Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho put on spot by Carragher call

One of the unwritten rules in journalism is to always turn your phone off during an interview, but that obviously doesn't apply former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher.

In a postmatch chat with Philippe Coutinho for Norwegian channel Viasport, Carragher receives a phone call midway through.

To make the light of the interruption, the main interviewer, former Premier League striker Jan Aage Fjortoft, jokes that Barcelona are checking in on Coutinho after his hat trick against Spartak Moscow on Wednesday night.

Skip to 1:00 of the video to see Coutinho awkwardly laugh off the joke, and Carragher insist: "He's staying."
