Former Anfield midfielder Lucas Leiva has been celebrating his son Pedro’s ninth birthday and a video of the youngster celebrating Liverpool’s sixth Champions League title is doing the rounds.
Fans are absolutely loving this video posted by The Anfield Wrap of Pedro Leiva singing ‘Campione’ whilst he runs around the house celebrating in a Liverpool shirt.
The Brazilian midfielder announced the birth of Pedro back in 2011 and the young Leiva has become an icon amongst Reds fans. In 2015, a video of a four-year-old Pedro doing the Daniel Sturridge dance went viral on social media and Kopites have loved him ever since.
Lucas left the Merseyside outfit in 2017 to join Lazio after a decade with the Reds when he contributed to 28 goals in 346 appearances (via Transfermarkt). Although he wasn’t Liverpool’s most clinical or influential midfielder, fans loved the Brazilian and may hope Pedro will follow in his father’s footsteps and join the Reds when he’s older.
Love this, the sheer joy!

Do you think Pedro will one day return to Liverpool? Would you like to see another generation of Leiva at Anfield?
