Liverpool Fans Are Raging That Lucas Leiva Has Been Denied a Testimonial

Liverpool have refused to grant a testimonial to midfielder Lucas Leiva and a lot of the club’s supporters are absolutely livid about it.

The Brazilian international moved to Anfield back in July 2007, and as is usually customary after 10 years of service, the club is supposed to grant the player a glamour match in his honour against an opposition of his choice.
