Lucas Leiva: Why it’s too early to judge these four Liverpool players

Liverpool's Brazilian star has had his say on four of the club's summer signings.

Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva has been speaking about the Reds’ summer signings and the fact that he believes they will come good in time.

Lazar Markovic has recently shown glimpses of the player many know him to be, while Emre Can, Alberto Moreno and Javier Manquillo are all yet to really show what they can do at Anfield.

But in an interview with Liverpool’s official website, the Brazilian explained the faith he has in them.

“I think they will deliver for sure,” he said. “A few we can already see are improving and playing a lot better.

“I took a while to settle in, that’s why I really don’t like to judge a young player coming into a new country.”

Lucas has gone on to make 257 appearances for Liverpool to date, including 14 so far this season.

Doubts remain about his long-term future but there is no doubt he is a fantastic option for Brendan Rodgers’ side; while he also appears to be a good influence when it comes to the younger players, no doubt advising them during their vital early time at the club.
