“How can one have a tiff with Lucas Leiva?” – Liverpool fans react to rumoured Lucas-Rodgers bust-up

With reports emerging that Lucas Leiva could leave Liverpool after falling out with Brendan Rodgers, we round-up the best of the reaction.

The always reliable Paul Joyce of the Express reports that the Brazilian is set to move on, after eight years at Anfield.

Joyce states that Rodgers sees the 28-year-old as fifth-choice midfielder at the club, and that leaving him out of the squad for the win over Stoke “was a bold step by the manager who seems determined to rule with something of an iron fist this season.”

Lucas has been linked with a move away from Liverpool a number of times in the past, but following this seemingly likely fall-out with the manager, it really does feel like the end this time.

Here is how social media reacted to the rumours surrounding the news:

‘Mannyyyyy’ in the comments section:

I’d hate to see Lucas leave. He had his chances to leave last season and before that too but he chose not to and I’m pretty sure it’s because the love he has for this beautiful club and fans.

‘alex’ in the comments section:

I would be distraught if he was allowed to leave. Maybe I have attachment issues.

He and Skrtel are the last in the line of veterans of the club – they are the two players who know what it takes and means to play for our club.

‘soggy cornflake in the comments section:

It’s better for Lucas if he leaves. The lad’s been a great servant and deserves first team football elsewhere. I’m not happy that Rodgers has had another falling out with a player, if that is the case.

West Ham are being linked with a possible move for Lucas.
