Liverpool hopes high for speedy return of Lucas
Thursday 30 August 2012
Brendan Rodgers, the Liverpool manager, has backed his midfielder Lucas to make a speedy recovery from his latest injury setback.
The Brazilian, who missed most of last season after knee surgery, has been ruled out for two to three months with a thigh problem.
But Rodgers is confident he can return closer to the beginning than the end of that timescale.
Rodgers added: "He is a quick healer so I would hope we would have him back quicker than that but we won't be rushing him. He is a very courageous guy and very focused. His aim is to get back as quick as he can."
