Lucas Leiva loving life at Lazio
Former Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva says he is loving life in Rome, after joining Lazio in the summer of 2017.
After ten years at Anfield, the Brazilian called time on his spell in Merseyside for a sojourn in Serie A and Lucas insists he made the right decision.
“It was a new challenge for me,” he told the Liverpool website. “A club that received me with open arms and I had a lot of responsibility when I arrived, coming from Liverpool and bringing the experience.
“Since I arrived we won three titles, we are now second in the league and it has been fantastic, to be honest. The family has settled really well, the weather is fantastic so it’s been all positive since the day I arrived so I’m really happy.
“Like I said, I wanted to play and show my value again in a new challenge and I’ve been able to do that, so that’s really important as well.”
