I will not forget the horror Lucas went through with many Liverpool fans when (I included) could not stand him and wondered what he is doing playing for Liverpool. Now that he has gotten over that bumpy patch in his Liverpool career where he was booed by some fans, he has now turned out to be one of the best defensive midfielders in the Premier League.

Lucass has grown in leaps and bounds during his time at Liverpool and that has transformed to him being a regular for the Brazilian national team.

On Saturday against Bolton, Lucas put in another great shift which can be seen in the video below. There were suggestions this summer that we may even sell Lucas this summer and make way for another defensive midfielder like Gago or Diarra but I am glad that was all just speculation. I would not trade Lucas for anyone else right now.
