Liverpool’s Fabinho eager to secure ‘historic’ Premier League title win

Fabinho says winning the Premier League with Liverpool this season would ‘achieve something historic’.

Jurgen Klopp’s side currently lead the title race by two points from Manchester City, though the Merseyside club have played a game more than Pep Guardiola’s side.

With just five games remaining, hopes have been raised that Liverpool can finally end a 29-year wait for a league title, and Brazil international Fabinho admits he is excited by the prospect.

“I think the fact that it has been 29 years can be seen in what the fans are like because when they are asking for photos you can see the desire from them to win, for Liverpool to win the league after so long,” Fabinho told the Telegraph.

“And 29 years is a long time for a club like Liverpool. Obviously I am in my first season here but it would be great to win the league, to achieve something historic.

“Playing for Liverpool, I know what the relationship between the fans and the club is like. With every player you can see the desire to win, the desire to show that Liverpool are the best and deserve to win the league.”
