Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva says qualifying for the Champions League should be the club's top priority next season.

The Brazilian has been in fine form for The Reds this season in the absence of Javier Mascherano, who was sold to Barcelona, and Steven Gerrard, who has been ruled out for most of the season with a groin injury.

And after a renaissance under Kenny Dalglish, Lucas is aiming to finish back in the top four next season.


“The Champions League is the biggest target for us but we just have to finish well and start next season with a really positive mentality and attitude and then we’ll have a big chance of making our fans smile again," Lucas said.

“At the beginning of the season we were around the relegation zone.

“I don’t think anyone was expecting us to finish fifth or sixth and that’s a great comeback."
