Liverpool boss Rodgers pleased with Lucas Leiva injury progressLucas has suffered another long-term injury
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is pleased with the progress Lucas Leiva is making in his comeback from a lengthy injury.
Lucas tore a thigh muscle in the opening minutes of the Reds' 2-2 draw against Manchester City August 26 and was ruled out three months.
It was a tough blow for the midfielder after he missed the majority of last season due to a knee injury against Chelsea in November, but Rodgers is positive about his return.
"Lucas is doing very well," the Liverpool manager told the club's official website. "He's working every day, working hard with the medical team."
It was reported last week that Lucas would assist Rodgers in his time out of the game by aiding the club's scouting of future opponents, with the Northern Irish manager impressed by the Brazilian's knowledge of the game.
For the moment, though, the Seleção star is keeping himself busy by tweeting updates on the club's matches, much to the amusement of the club's supporters.
