Leiva ready for Liverpool midfield battle
Liverpool signing Lucas Leiva accepts he faces a long-term battle to establish himself in the club's crowded midfield.
"There is a great expectation here to win the English championship. Though, clearly the Champions League is always an important objective."
The midfielder revealed he will go by 'Leiva' in England and added: "English football is completely different to Brazilian. But there are some similarities in styles with the south of Brazil, where it's all about power and scoring goals."
