Liverpool midfielder concedes he would like Brazil return

By on November 1, 2011 - 62 views

Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva has admitted that he would like to return to Brazil one day.

The 24-year-old has become one of Liverpool’s key players following a difficult settling in period at Anfield after signing from Gremio in 2007.

Despite his success now, Lucas admits that he wants to go back to Gremio at the end of his career.

“I definitely would like to [return to Brazil]. Of course at the moment it is not my plan to come back to Brazil, but I would like to before I retire,” he told

“Maybe to play at Gremio again, my former club. That’s where everything started.”

Lucas won Liverpool’s Player of the Season award last term.

    It’s better for him to go now otherwise he would be too old to go back. EPL football is not condusive to him cos referees don’t offer enough protection.

    think he should go back now. hes an OK defensive mid, but not good enough. proof – against Spurs liverpool could not handle pace, and Lucas got bullied off, we need a proper classy defensive midfielder like Mascherano. I think it would be best if he goes back now, no point him staying at Liverpool and wait 8 yrs to win… NOTHING?!

    That’s the problem with liverpool fc, we have supporters of the calibre of above. haven’t a clue. Lucas was our best player last season. I hope he stays for life. The modern supporter who just likes to criticise, just too many of them.

    ^^^what Chri5jo said, the two numpties above him are clearly the sort who started supporting us just around about June 2005. They probably never even heard of Shanks, Paisley or Fagan. Complete idiots. Lucas was outstanding last season and he’s doing just as good this season.

    You should know Chri5jo, coz u are the one without a clue…both Meirelles and Suarez (even with half a season) was much better than Lucas..Meirelles even won a player of the month, why didnt Lucas if he was that good..and dont tell me coz he is playing further back…alot of ppl have won from both defence and midfield.. Lucas might be the best def. midfielder we got atm. but it doesnt make him good enough if we are to challange for top4. And TomTed…stop calling ppl without the same view as you idiots…it only make you look the bigger fool… so my, and the top two posters dont think he is good enough but you other guys do…its up to King Kenny to decide ;)

    What kind of idiots would want Lucas to stay at LFC for life? Not creative, not quick, clumsy and weak! I would volunteer to fly him to Brzil myself and even pay for his ticket! He is only playing coz Mascha left for Barcelona otherwise he would have gone already. Between Arsenal, Chelsea, Man City, Man Utd and Spurs, non of them would even have him for free even if he offered to play for free! Get to grips guys, that is why LFC is nowhere close to winning anything coz you believe tortoises like Lucas, Kuyt, Adam or co are class, actually, they are clueless and so is the lot of supporters like you. Look at Spurs, it is a mobile and streamlined machine ready to take you apart, and i am a LFC fan. We need class, not crap!!!!!

    Was best player amongst a clueless bunch, inlcuding him! He is absolutely rubbish. If he was as good as he thinks he is, top clubs would be making enquiries about him. Not even Luton Town is interested. How deluded are you lot? You so much lack ambition and class, it shows on most of the LFC players. Lucas, Kuyt, Sktel, Adam etc have no skill, technique nor pace. Top four, don’t make me laugh, and i am a Reds fan!

    It’s so funny how people will always say I am a Surpporter so i surpport my players all d way no matter what. No doubt Lucas is now better than before,but that doesn’t still make him the best. How many goals has he scored this season? It’s terrible when u hav a midfielder that finds it difficult to get a goal. To me Lucas is just a player who has grown from BELOW AVERAGE to AVERAGE. Ynwa.

    I’m blocking this website from my newsnow listings just as I do with all sites that insist on having advertisement banners obscuring the text in an article even after minimising. I recommend everyone else to do the same.

    Lucas is improving season by season,the lad has given 100% every time he has pulled the shirt on, more than a lot of other so called superstars

    Lucas is the best at the moment in Liverpool. Should only be allowed to go back to Brazil only when he his 37.
