Fabinho Fits Into Liverpool Unit, Explains Klopp
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was full of praise for Brazilian midfielder Fabinho in his pre-match press conference ahead of Sunday’s clash with Chelsea.
Fabinho is set to make his 50 th Liverpool appearance this weekend and Klopp says that the player fits the ideal of his midfield.
“Fabinho playing in a midfield with having two players who are not really involved in defending, he would look completely different as a player," Klopp explained.
"It's all about why we talk so often about our defensive players how good they are and stuff like this, it's because the team defends in a specific manner and that's really important.
“If you are not alone, if you have smart boys and good boys around you, it makes life always easier, especially in football.
"Yes, very important part of the team of course, but thank God, he doesn’t have to play alone. It's about all his game intelligence. It's really good and that helps all of us.”
