Fabinho Has Alisson and Firmino to Thank for Swift Liverpool Adaption
Liverpool midfielder Fabinho says that teammates Roberto Firmino and Alisson Becker helped him to acclimatise to life on Merseyside quickly, following his £45m move from Monaco last summer.
The midfielder says the presence of his compatriots and their families has been a huge help to him, as well as Firmino’s easy going nature.
“The two Brazilians helped me helped us a lot, it helped that they were already here,” Fabinho told Gazeta Esportiva, “We are always together in the day to day, almost every week we do something at someone's house.
“Firmino's family was very important to mine. He is not how he seems, he is a quiet guy. He does not talk much. Only he is a prestigious guy here, you hardly see him in a bad mood either.”
The trio have all been picked for Brazil’s friendlies against Panama on Porto and Czech Republic in Prague during the March international period.
