Neymar Sends Lucas Leiva Message Of Support Following Knee Injury

Lucas LeivaBrazilian star Neymar sent a message of support to injured Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva on Tuesday.

Leiva was introduced at halftime during the Reds’ 2-2 draw with Aston Villa on Saturday but had to leave the field 20 minutes later after picking up a problem with his knee.

Two days before, Neymar — a teammate of Liverpool’s No. 21 at the international level — suffered an ankle injury during a Copa del Rey tie for the Spanish heavyweights.

The forward dispatched a tweet to his elder colleague Tuesday that read: “Hi mate, be strong; we are together. God bless you!”

Lucas responded: “Thanks brother, we’ll be back soon.”

Neymar then concluded the conversation by replying: “Good! We’ll come back flying high…we’re together.”
