‘Liverpool Feels Like Home’ Says Fabinho
Liverpool midfielder Fabinho says that the city is starting to feel like home to him, after a period of adaptation to the Premier League. The Brazilian has been in excellent form in recent weeks, after a slow start to life at Anfield.
The player says he feels more settled now and has become close to Brazilian and Spanish teammates in particular. “In the last few months I’ve started playing a lot more so I’m feeling really good on the pitch being able to help the team and I’ve adapted really well to life off the pitch as well. “Everything is great with my family, they’re enjoying Liverpool. As time goes by, it’s natural for us to become more accustomed to life here, particularly at a club like Liverpool, which has an excellent structure.
“And we have really welcoming fans - from the time I first arrived and I wasn’t in the team I was getting messages supporting me and saying that my time will come. My teammates have helped me a lot as well.
“Obviously I’m closer to the Brazilian players because of the language and these are things that help me both on and off the pitch. And I didn’t know Alberto [Moreno] before I came here, but it’s like we’ve been friends forever. He’s a really fun guy and is always with us.
“All of us in the squad get on great, but I think it’s normal to be closer to your compatriots and Alberto, who speaks Spanish, which is quite easy for us to understand. This closeness really helps us to settle in generally. The city as well: me and my family really like it so we feel at home in Liverpool.”
