Lucas Leiva has paid an emotional tribute to Liverpool teammate Steven Gerrard.
Former England international midfielder Gerrard announced this morning that he will leave the Reds at the end of the season.
The 34-year-old has been at Liverpool his entire career and is one of the greatest players in the club’s history.
Lucas has been playing with Gerrard since 2007 and has paid a glowing tribute to his teammate on Instagram.
His talent is evident on a weekly basis but I have had the absolute privilege of working with him day in, day out, for almost 8 years. An incredible human; a real leader and a great man, who has always maintained his immaculate work ethic. Steven, I am sure that your next challenge will be successful, as you are one of the biggest and best ever.
Gerrard has won the FA Cup twice, the League Cup thrice, the Champions League once, and the UEFA Cup once with Liverpool.
