Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva talks about Instagram picture with Chelsea, Man City and Man United players

Lucas with his Premier League friends last week - Lucas Leiva/Instagram

Liverpool and Brazil midfielder Lucas Leiva celebrated his birthday this time last week and went out for a meal with various South American footballers currently playing in the Premier League.

Interestingly though they weren’t all Liverpool players. At his birthday celebrations was Manchester City pair Fernandinho and Pablo Zabaleta and Manchester United's Brazilian twins Fabio and Rafael da Silva.

Reds team mates Philippe Coutinho and Luis Suárez were also present at the meal.

Many were surprised when the picture of several rival players together came to light on Lucas Leiva’s Instagram but the Brazilian has been explaining the picture and more in the Liverpool Echo this week.

“It was a bit of a decision between us whether to put the picture out because there were players from rival clubs together but I said we should.”

“It was a nice photo and I wanted to post it. The guys from London – the likes of David Luiz, Oscar, Willian and Ramires – probably would have been there too if Liverpool was not so far away.

“The friendship of these players is something that I really value. There is always a lot of respect between us.”
