Klopp Explains Fabinho Absence
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says that he omitted Fabinho from his match day squad for the 1-0 victory over Brighton on Saturday as the Brazilian is still adapting to life at Liverpool.
The Brazilian joined for £43.7m from Monaco this summer, but did not even feature among the substitutes on Saturday evening.
Klopp said there is a lot of competition for places at the club, “It is about players understanding the position and who else is available as well.
“Otherwise Fabinho would have been involved in the squad, as he was in the first week. That is it. It is different football to what he is used to but he is improving already with big steps. I can see that in the sessions and that is cool.”
