      A lot better than many on here will ever credit him for.  Never the best player on the pitch, earned motm shouts at a rate that put better players to shame. A leader on the pitch and the way he talked to young players breaking in to the team was never fully appreciated.

      Agree Rodders.

      Hugely underrated footballer and always a personal favourite of mine.

      yes he was judged by the fans against Gerrard nothing to do with what type of player he was.

      No, no he wasn’t.

      seen his documentary on LFC TV . Personally I always thought he was so much better than people thought and a bit like Hendo was unfairly judged against Stevie. He gave his all for this club and that for me is always worthy of support.

      Played within himself for the good of the team.
      Just like Henderson has been doing under Klopp.
      A fantastic player whose only real weakness was a lack of pace.

      Now I think back, Rafa did to lucas what Klopp has done to Hendo, Turned a good attacking MF into a good holding MF.

      But as they get older realize they have had an amazing education in football playing under amazing managers, who always picked them.

      Lucas is a class act, and was very under rated by so many fans and pundits, shows how ignorant some are, at what players are being told to do my the managers.

      Was he not player of the year last year for Lazio ?

      Pleased to see him win the Coppa Italia last night. He was loving it at the front of the trophy lift. Great to see.
