“That’s why we love him” – Liverpool players celebrate Lucas Leiva’s 10 years on Merseyside


 25 April 2017

The Liverpool squad were all in attendance at Anfield on Monday night to mark Lucas Leiva‘s 10 years on the books on Merseyside.

Lucas joined the Reds from Gremio in 2007, and has gone on to make 342 appearances for the club so far.

The 30-year-old is Liverpool’s current longest-serving player, ahead of Jordan Henderson, and is the eighth longest-serving player in the Premier League.

This season, Lucas has become a valuable squad player for Jurgen Klopp, particularly when called upon to fill in at centre-back, but there remain doubts over his long-term future.

He has one year left on his contract with the club, but has admitted he would assess his options at the end of the season.

Liverpool could have offered Lucas a testimonial following his 10 years of service, but this now seems unlikely.

Instead, Jurgen Klopp and his squad took to Anfield for a party to commemorate Lucas’ decade on Merseyside.

Daniel Sturridge, Loris Karius, Divock Origi, Georginio Wijnaldum, Nathaniel Clyne, Simon Mignolet, Emre Can, Sheyi Ojo, Ovie Ejaria, Connor Randall and Trent Alexander-Arnold were among those present.

Liverpool legends Jamie Carragher and John Aldridge also turned up, while Adam Lallana, Steven Gerrard and Philippe Coutinho were among those to mark the night on Instagram.
