Liverpool midfielder Lucas admits career fear


Bookmark and Share

Thursday 05 July 2012

Liverpool’s Brazilian midfielder Lucas Leiva has admitted he feared his career was over when he suffered the knee injury that ended his season in December, Yahoo Sports has reported.



Lucas underwent surgery on his left anterior cruciate ligament following Liverpool’s Carling Cup victory over Chelsea and has not played since, instead having to recuperate and rehabilitate the injury via extensive training, some of which was carried out in Brazil at former club Gremio. Lucas left his homeland for Merseyside in 2007.


It was the first serious injury of the 25-year-old’s career and the Brazil international revealed he found it difficult to spend five months on the sidelines as his teammates won the Carling Cup against Cardiff City and reached the FA Cup final against Chelsea. After returning to pre-season training on Wednesday Lucas has spoken of his desire to return to full fitness after banishing the worries over his future.


He said: “To be honest in a few moments I thought I couldn't come back any more or even walk because the way I looked at my knee I felt scared. But as soon as I started the rehab it is unbelievable how your body reacts. My main target now is to be 100% recovered and be okay to play a part in next season.
