The former Monaco midfielder Fabinho said that he is enjoying life at Anfield, In an interview with Globo Esporte, the 24-year-old player claimed that the start to life at Liverpool has been “very good”.

The Brazilian has obeyed the clarion call to participate in a friendly match against USA on Friday night which would see him earn his fifth cap with the national team.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp already made his intention known to the club why he is yet to start Fabinho which includes requiring him to have an attacking mindset as a defensive midfielder.

But it appears that the past training could be deteriorated psychologically as Tite has plans in converting Fabinho into a right back player in his team. This is a clear view of what Liverpool manager already emphasized on.

Fabinho claimed that despite playing as a midfielder for Monaco for two years, he probably missed out on Tite‘s team at the world cup tournament in Russia because there were so many options- which means he was recalled because of the lesser competition in the right-back position.

However, despite missing out in Klopp’s radar in three matches, Fabinho believes he is already acclimatizing to the English football, asserting that his playing time is imminent.

Liverpool will visit Tottenham next weekend at Wembley Stadium in a turf clash which could stretch the points between them.

Do you think Fabinho could start against Spurs?
