Liverpool star Lucas Leiva is the proud father as his son continues to train with the Reds

Lucas Leiva’s legacy could be set to continue at Liverpool beyond the midfielder’s playing career.

The Brazil international’s son Pedro has been training with the Liverpool youth team as he bids to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a Kop hero.

Lucas has regularly posted videos of their training sessions in the back garden as he looks to impart his vast knowledge after a nine-year Reds career.

The South American posted the above snap of his son on his Instagram page and wrote the following caption: “⚽️❤️🔝 he loves it !! #lfc”

In October, Lucas took to Instagram to thank the Liverpool academy coaches for their work with Pedro at Melwood.

The Brazilian has started three of Klopp’s four games in charge of the 18-time English champions.
