Former Liverpool player Lucas Leiva has lifelong fans, insisting he was happy to see his former club win the Champions League despite losing his dignity.
Jules sailed from Lucas Anfield to Lazio in 2017, ending his 10-year stay at Merseyside.
The Brazilians’ only trophy in that decade was the 2011-12 League Cup, but the Reds reached the Champions League final in a row after moving to Italy.
Jুরrgen Klopp’s side have been behind Tottenham since losing to Real Madrid in 2018, with Lucas twice as interested.

“The year after I left, we lost in the final. I met the boys here in Rome [for the 2018 semi-final]. But of course, [to win it] I was really happy, to be honest, “he said in the latest episode of LFCTV’s Legend on Lockdown.
“My son, my family, we are Liverpool fans now.
“It’s a great achievement and I’m really happy because I’m still in touch with a lot of people who are there and still take great care of them.
“Of course, you always think, ‘If I waited another year …’ I’m not happy to be honest.
“It doesn’t make sense when you’re not happy. Honestly, I see Liverpool win better and I’m happy to play.
“I’m really happy as a fan. Of course, I want to win it but I won it as a fan, let’s say”
Liverpool were knocked out of the competition by Atletico Madrid this season, but have cleared 25 points at the top of the Premier League.
No return date has been set for the English top flight due to the closure of fixtures in March amid the coronavirus epidemic.
