Player profile

The Brazilian known simply as Fabinho agreed a deal to join Liverpool within days of the Champions League final defeat in Kiev in May 2018, providing a boost to disappointed fans.

Fabinho was born in Sao Paulo in 1993, but his first professional club was Rio side Fluminese. He left there for Rio Ave Portugal in June 2012 without making a first team appearance. However after just a month in northern Portugal he was loaned to Real Madrid's reserve side Castilla for 2012-13 and made and towards the end of the season even made an appearance for the Spanish giants in La Liga. 

A loan deal was then agreed for Fabinho to join Monaco for the 2013-14 season and this was then extended for him to say here in 2014-15. This moved was then made permanent in 2015 and he signed a four year deal. That same summer he was selected for the Brazilian national side for the first time and named in their Copa America squad.

A defensive midfielder who can play in either full back position, Fabinho's versatility was a factor in Jurgen Klopp's decision to sign him with Emre Can's contract expiring in June 2018. Despite not being an attacking player, he scored an impressive 23 goals in 167 Ligue 1 appearances for Monaco over five years. He agreed terms on 28th May 2018 and became a Liverpool player on 1st July. Still coming to terms with Jurgen Klopp's intense fitness and training methods, Fabinho has had to be patient and did not feature at all until coming on as an injury time substitute against Paris Saint Germain in the Champions League on 18th September.
