Fabinho Relishing Midfield Competition At Liverpool
Liverpool midfielder Fabinho says he is relishing the prospect of competing for his place in the Liverpool midfield. With the likes of Henderson, Wijnaldum, Lallana, Chamberlain, Milner, Keita and Shaqiri, there is plenty of competition.
“When I came to Liverpool I knew this competition would exist in midfield and I think it’s really good for the team. If anything happens to a player, there’s adequate cover. During pre-season I played alongside a variety of different players and we blended really well.
“So, overall, I think it’s a good thing for the team. I think my performances have been good. It’s a different playing style than at Monaco; there were two of us in midfield there and here at Liverpool there’s three.”
Fabinho paid tribute to his teammates in accelerating his acclimatisation, “My midfield partners have given me guidance and assistance, as have the defence. I knew (my role) would change and I feel I’ve adapted well.
“You seek guidance and help from the players around you and that has worked really well up until now. It has been really good since I arrived here. The players and the coaching staff have been brilliant.”
