Brazilian midfielder Lucas Leiva, one of Liverpool’s longest serving players, has decided to swap Anfield for the Olympic Stadium after inking a contract with Italian giants Lazio.
Lucas made close to 350 appearances in LFC colours. He scored only seven goals in his decade long stint with the Reds, but they were quite good ones- as this video will show you. From his first strike against Havant & Waterlooville to his last against Plymouth Argyle and goals against the likes of Chelsea, Benfica and Steaua- he found the back of the net in a variety of competitions.
He went five seasons without a goal before breaking the drought against Argyle. His most productive season was 2008/09, when he scored thrice.
