‘I Am An Organiser and I Play With Intensity’ Fabinho Tells Liverpool Fans
New Liverpool signing Fabinho says he is a player that likes to organise his teammates and that he is a strong man marker. The Brazilian joined the club from Monaco this week, with experience of playing at right-back and in central midfield in his career to date.
Speaking to Liverpool.com, Fabinho said, “I believe I am a player that can organise the game well for my team. I play with a lot of intensity and I’m quite strong in man-marking. Unfortunately, occasionally I get some yellow cards for that but I think that won’t be a problem here.
“Hopefully I will have no difficulty in adapting to this type of football. I know that the type of football here is quite intense and physical but I think I got some of that while playing in France and I hope I won’t find any problems to adapt to this league.”
Fabinho also revealed that he spoke with his compatriot Roberto Firmino prior to joining, “We spoke a bit more about how the city was, about the infrastructure of the club, the city and we also spoke about the coaches and how they do their work.
“So I was able to know a bit more about Liverpool through Firmino. I had been with him at the Brazilian national team on a few occasions. I know he’s a fantastic person, his background is from nice people.
“He is also very good for someone who comes to a new country, a new city – someone who speaks the same language. This will of course make the adaptation much easier.”
