Liverpool star Fabinho has revealed that the only player in training to have displaced Virgil Van Dijk from possession is Roberto Firmino.
The number nine is one of the best players in the squad and Fabinho has praised the number nine for his brilliant overall performance in the team at Anfield.
During an interview on the Hoje Sim podcast (as quoted by Sport Witness), Fabinho stated: “At Liverpool, [Firmino] is the perfect player there for that position because he’s a smart guy, a guy who helps a lot in the build-up.
“He’s a guy that – from time to time – I see on the side recovering balls. I say, ‘Thanks, Firmino, cheers for the help.’ And with our characteristic of the two open players, he helps a lot because he scores goals and gives players the ball to score goals as well.
“And Klopp says that an irreplaceable player for him is Firmino,” the 25-year-old revealed. “And I’m going to talk about my vision: I’ve always liked him a lot, but when you follow him every day, you realise that the guy is different. The guy is very good.”
