Lucas Leiva has expressed his desire to remain at Anfield, after being linked with a move to Italian side Palermo.

“I’m happy in Liverpool and looking forward to my fourth season.” said the Brazilian. “I hope I stay. I’m happy to play for Liverpool and to improve my performances, as I did last season.”

The midfielder has not been a success with the Anfield faithful, but after fifty appearances last season he has won over a few of them.

“I’m not here to try to prove critics wrong. I’m here to prove myself to the manager and my team-mates.”

“That’s the most important thing. I don’t know why people criticise me so much but I just try to be positive and be strong.”

“I know I had a good season last season and hope it will be even better this season. I have to keep going and show the manager that I can play and have the quality that he expects.”

With Roy Hodgson now Liverpool’s manager, the twenty-three year old will know that he will have to make sure he wins over the former Fulham man to stay at the club.

“He seems to be very good as a coach, good with the tactical side of the game.”

“He will help everyone but for me he has a lot of experience, he has worked with big players at big clubs so his experience will help in giving me advice to help improve my game.”

“I am confident we will have a better season. When there are lots of changes new motivation comes through and I think we can do better. We will do better.”
