Lucas Leiva is excited by Liverpool's apparent interest in AC Milan star Ronaldinho. Lucas has backed the move, believing his fellow Brazilian can change the path to fortune for the Reds.

"I am not aware of anything in terms of Ronaldinho signing, but I would be very happy if this was to happen," Lucas told Globoesporte.

"We started a friendship when we played in the Olympics and for Brazil. It would be nice to play with him at Liverpool.

"Everyone knows Ronaldinho and they know what he can do."
