Happy At Lazio, Lucas Leiva Does Not Rule Out The Possibility Of Playing In Brazil

Lazio midfielder Lucas Leiva has expressed his desire to return to playing in his native Brazil someday, for now, he is happy and at home at the Italian capital club.

In an interview with the media of his home country, ESPN Brazil, Lucas Leiva first discussed the possibility of returning to play in his home country one day in the future.

"I'd love to go back there, but in recent years I've been very careful about discussing it, the fact is that the moment you say you want it, people think something is going to happen soon," he said.

"And don't forget I'm 34 now, a lot of people would say, at some point maybe I don't need to go back there."

Furthermore, the midfielder discussed the new coach Maurizio Sarri who came to replace Simone Inzaghi who left for Inter Milan.

"Now that a new coach has arrived at Lazio, I'm learning new things and I'm very happy."

In the end, the 34-year-old midfielder discussed the future of his career.

“I still have a one-year contract with Lazio."

"I repeat, I want to return to Brazil but it is still difficult for me to plan, I don't want to create any expectations."

The 34-year-old Biancoceleste signed in 2017 from Liverpool made 32 appearances in Serie A last season under his previous coach, Simone Inzaghi, playing 2157 minutes in total.

The former Liverpool player seems to be a consistent player in Maurizio Sarri's 4-3-3 formation, playing as a defensive midfielder behind Luis Alberto and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.  Leiva averaged 2.95 tackles, 1.18 blocks, and 1.90 interceptions per 90 minutes last season.
