Lucas Leiva posts Instagram video confirming Brazilian is close to a Liverpool return

What a fillip this is for Liverpool!

Brazilian defensive midfielder Lucas Leiva has been out injured since the 2-2 draw with Aston Villa in mid-January.

Since then, Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has taken Leiva’s place in the defensive midfield position.

But, to have a hard working and experienced player for the run-in will be a huge boost to Brendan Rodgers’ upwardly mobile side.

It could also help cut out the defensive mistakes Liverpool have been showing…

Lucas tagged the video above with the following message: “Another good day of work. Outro bom dia de trabalho. Jordan Milsom, Paulo Barreira top professional.”
