‘I have to think about my future’ says Lucas Leiva
Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva insists that he could still leave the club in January, even after manager Jurgen Klopp hinted that the Brazilian would stay until his contract expires in the summer. Lucas has been heavily linked with a move to Inter Milan in the January window.
“I have always been very honest in terms of the trust I have with the manager,” he said. “I had a few options to go. I have to think about my long-term. I know I don’t have many years left here. I have to start to think about it. Liverpool is a place I love, there is no doubt about that.
“But this is more about thinking about my future as well. Game time, things like this. I have to deal with it. The manager and I have a fantastic relationship. I have learned a lot from him and he is someone I appreciate working with. I am learning all the time.
“It is not just in terms of football, I am learning from him as a man. If, by the end of January, I am here, it will be great. But I cannot tell you in two months’ time, four months’ time or one year’s time. I have to think about my future. I am happy in this moment and I just have to go day-by day.”
