Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has hailed Fabinho, calling him ‘spectacular’. Fabinho joined Liverpool from Monaco last summer but was not a part of Klopp’s scheme of things during the first couple of months of the season. However, he has adapted to Premier League football and has become a regular under Klopp lately.
The Brazilian has made 26 appearances for Liverpool this season so far, scoring once and assisting twice.
Fabinho put in a solid performance for Liverpool in their win over Watford on Wednesday. Klopp praised Fabinho’s performance, saying, “Fabinho was really good for sure. It was one of his much better games. He had some spectacular moments – getting the ball, a little steal here or there, really good.
Organisation wise, he was brilliant. Protection wise, he was brilliant. Football wise, he was really good. For sure, it was one of his top games.”
Klopp also said that the Brazilian has grown into his current position at the club. He said, “He’s just feeling more natural in his position. He’s a very nice boy and a very smart boy as well. He wants to do everything right.
A couple of things changed for him, intensity wise and tactical understanding as well. But he did not need that as much as he maybe thought. Sometimes you leave the boys a little bit to adapt naturally to it and not give them so much information. Some things happen then.
Now, it’s no problem for him if we play with three, five, six or seven, whatever in the centre. That’s exactly what we wanted. That’s where we are with Fabinho now and hopefully it stays like that.”
Liverpool next play rivals Everton tomorrow.
