I do not care how much money he makes but it is unacceptable how Lucas Leiva is treated by our fans including by one of our own writers.
Lucas might not be a Kaka or Zico but you got to give the kid credit for captaining Brazil’s U21 and being called up for the Brazilian national team.
As far as Liverpool are concerned Lucas has been a great servant of the club, he is always available (Never Injured) and over the last year has worked very hard to improve his game. He even buffed up over the Summer to handle the physical aspect of the Premier League. With Alonso gone he was Rafa’s best choice to fill in the midfield until Aquilani is ready to play.
That is why Lucas makes the starting 11.
