Liverpool's Lucas Leiva hails 'strong' Suarez
Lucas Leiva believes that Liverpool teammate Luís Suarez is immune to abuse from fans when the Reds travel away.
Suarez has come in for even more criticism after a controversial goal against non-leaguers Mansfield, adding to an already lengthy rapsheet but Lucas says the Uruguayan is not bothered about what opposing fans think.
"I don't think it will bother him," Lucas said. "He gets it at every stadium that he goes to, so this is just one more for him. I think he copes very well with that, and if people still criticise him for everything and he keeps on scoring goals I don't think he'll be worried about it.
"That's the strong character that he has and maybe instead of it being a negative thing it could be a positive thing. A lot of players like the boos and it gives them that bit extra.
"Of course it's not nice to see a player, a friend, get that amount of abuse but that's the way it is," he added. "He's a strong character and he's showing everyone the quality he has on the pitch. That's the most important thing at the moment."
