Lucas Leiva admits ‘my situation is not good’ at Liverpool
Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva admits that his situation at Liverpool is not idea. The Brazilian is subject to intense speculation, with Inter and AC Milan heavily linked with loan moves for the out of favour midfielder.
His opportunities in the Reds’ first team have been limited this season and the player has confessed that he wants more game time, which could lead to him moving during the January transfer window in search of minutes.
“The situation is not good. It's not something I want for my future, but at this point I have to deal with it and try to find a solution when I get a chance. I have to be professional, think of the team and see what will happen. I do not want this for my career, especially at my age.
“I'm not close to retiring and I still have a lot of games ahead of me. Of course there are rumours, but today the best place for me is Liverpool. I cannot say the same for a week, a month or four months. I have to judge if something comes up that will be better.
The coach has been very good to me and we have a very open relationship so it's nothing to worry about. I want to play, we are paid to play, but I try to be professional and help and when I have the chance, I will do my best. It's been a special season and we still have the chance to win trophies and that's something worth considering.”
