Lucas Leiva On Course To Win Lazio Player Of The Year Again Thanks To Liverpool Fans

Lucas Leiva is poised to win Lazio Player Of The Year for the second year in a row thanks to Liverpool fans hijacking a Twitter poll to determine the winner again.

Lucas won the poll with 71% of the vote. Fast forward a year, and it's happening again.

Currently in the semi-final stages of voting, Lucas Leiva has a whopping 87% of the votes in comparison to teammates Felipe Caicedo and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

His two challengers have 6% and 7% respectively.

With three hours left of the poll, it's hard to see the 32-year-old being toppled. And it comes as no surprise that Liverpool fans are the culprits.

Lucas developed into a cult hero at Anfield during his ten-year stint in the Premier League. He signed from Gremio for £5 million in 2007 and played 347 games for The Reds, winning their Player of the Year in 2010/2011 as well as the Carabao Cup the following season.

He departed Liverpool for Lazio in 2017 for the same sum he joined The Reds for.

Lazio endured a disappointing campaign in Serie A this season finishing 8 th under coach Simone Inzaghi.

They did taste silverware however as they defeated Atalanta 2-0 in the Coppa Italia Final which Lucas played in. The Brazilian could soon be adding an extra individual trophy to his cabinet thanks to help from his old club's supporters.
