Fabinho opens up of difficult start to Liverpool career

Liverpool midfielder Fabinho has said that he has had a good start to life in England, despite failing to feature in any of the Reds opening Premier League games.

The Reds beat off competition from a number of top Premier League clubs to land the Brazilian this summer, as Jurgen Klopp spent the best part of £200 million in an impressive spending spree.

Despite people tipping the £40m former Monaco midfielder to be an integral part of Klopp’s midfield, he is the only one of Liverpool’s four high profile signings not to have featured so far this season, although he has admitted that he is not concerned about his lack of action so far:

“My start has been good, good adaptation,” he insisted when speaking to Globo Esporte. “The pre-season was very good, we had nine friendlies and I played nine.

“It was good to play against English teams to see what the rhythm, the intensity and the physique are like.”

Fabinho added that the presence of fellow Brazilian’s Alisson and Roberto Firmino at Anfield has helped him settle in:

“The way the team played I got it right, the more experienced players helped me, the technical team as well,” he said.

“Me and my wife are liking the city, we already have a home. Firmino is being a great guy, his family has given a good support to me and Alisson.

“It’s been fine (settling in). Having Brazilians in the team helps. Now (the next step) it’s really to make the debut. I’m fine, training well and prepared.”
