Lucas delighted Liverpool managed to keep hold of Suarez
Lucas Leiva is delighted Liverpool were able to keep hold of Luis Suarez during the summer. He could have been running out for Arsenal this season had Liverpool not battled to keep hold of their top star.
Lucas said: "What he did last year for us and what he is doing already just shows that is why the club wanted to keep him.
"Liverpool want to keep their best players and he was the best player last year - and probably the Premier League's best player.
"We are happy he stayed with us and he is just showing every week how committed he is.
"It doesn't matter what was going on in the summer his mind now is just to help the team, to achieve great things and hopefully it will finish in a positive way in May."
