Lucas Leiva was involved in plenty of memorable clashes with Manchester United as a Liverpool player – but he has still not forgiven Jamie Redknapp for giving Xabi Alonso the credit for his own performance in 2009.
One of Liverpool‘s best wins against United in recent years came in March 2009 as they crushed their fierce rivals 4-1 at Old Trafford thanks to goals from Fernando Torres, Steven Gerrard, Fabio Aurelio and Andrea Dossena.
The Reds were without Alonso in midfield that day, only for Lucas to fill the void with an excellent performance in the middle of the park.
But the Brazilian clearly still hasn’t forget that Sky pundit Redknapp went on to praise the missing Spaniard.

These are mightily impressive.
The Ox is justifying his decision to leave Arsenal
We all know who’s number one.
The Ox has found his feet at Liverpool.
It’s not even the first time this has happened.
Son Heung-min deserves much more celebration.
Plus why we’re scared of Antonio Conte.
Could a move to Manchester be imminent?
At least the mistake didn’t prove costly.
Some harsh words here from Redknapp.
