The Brazil international has been with The Reds since 2007 having joined from Gremio.

Lucas has one year left on his Liverpool contract and he is eager to help the side regain their former glory.

Liverpool were champions of Europe in 2005 and Lucas sees no reason why they cannot win the prestigious competition once again.

"I have no reasons to go and I hope the club see things the same," he told The Guardian.

"It would be fantastic to play for Liverpool in the Champions League again and I don't see why we can't return.

"We have a squad that is united in its will and desire to return this club to where it belongs."

Sympathetic

Lucas endured a slow start to life in England and as a then 20-year-old he believes fans should have been more sympathetic to his plight.

"Things were not looking good and some supporters were obviously not happy," he said on early life at Anfield. "I still think people need to see the bigger picture.

"The move to Liverpool represented a change of country, language and there was also that I was only 20 and arriving at the club in one of the most demanding leagues in the world.

"Also, few people seemed to remember Liverpool had a group of players that had made two of the last three Champions League finals. It would have been impossible to just parachute in.

"Maybe the supporters thought a Brazilian midfielder would do just magic."
