The Daily Express reports that one of the oldest members of the current Liverpool squad, Lucas Leiva has revealed how the change of management has turned the squad around. Like a majority of the team, the 29-year-old Brazilian has also become a better player and has made 26 Premier League appearances thus far, both in the midfield and defence departments. Recently crowned Player of the Year by the Liverpool FC Former Players Association at the end-of-the-season gala night, the midfielder revealed the future is bright for the club after recent growths. After missing out on the Carling Cup trophy via a penalty shootout at Wembley, Lucas declares they have put it behind them, and all eyes are fixed on the Europa League finals against Sevilla.
Klopp led Liverpool to a 2nd final in just 6 months, and that has caught the attention of everybody. The 4 – 3 victory over Dortmund at Anfield further made a strong statement and the home ground is turning into a fortress once again. Liverpool were bound to have another poor season with Brendan Rodgers in charge at the beginning of the season. After 3 wins in the opening 8 games, the Welsh was shown the exit, and the arrival of the German has made a top-6 finish realistic. It promises to be a great campaign next term, and Lucas hopes to remain further than the new season after a good outing this term.
