Lucas Leiva injury a real problem for Liverpool FC defence.
By Kevin Morley.
During the pre season tour of America, Brendan Rodgers took time out to explain how important he saw Lucas Leiva to his future Liverpool side and his plans for the club as a whole. Rodgers not only explained how influential and positive Lucas is as a character around the club but also how vital he is to the emerging style Rodgers is seeking to implement at Liverpool FC. This is why the injury sustained by Lucas at the weekend, and the news that his absence could potentially stretch to early November, is so gut wrenching for the player, the team and the new manager.
