Fabinho signs new deal with Liverpool

Liverpool midfielder Fabinho has signed a new contract with the club. 

It can be recalled that the Brazil international joined the Reds from Monaco in 2018 and has won the Premier League, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, and the FIFA World Cup in his time at Anfield thus far.

Speaking after putting pen to paper on the new deal, Fabinho said: “I’m delighted to have signed a new contract with the club,” 

 “Since the beginning of the conversation, I was really positive about it because it’s what I wanted — staying in this club, keep playing for Liverpool. Now this is official and I’m really happy.

“These last three seasons I’ve been really happy here. I learned a lot with the manager, with all the staff, with the boys as well.

“We achieved things together and for me I think it’s the best place to be, the best place to keep growing, to keep learning from the staff, from the boys. Hopefully we will keep achieving good things.

“The manager and the staff are pushing us for this because they know our capacity, they know our quality.

“Personally, as I say, I want to be the best for the team, I want to be an important piece in this team — not just as a player but as a leader as well. Keep learning from the boys and the staff and be the best I can.

“We know with these players we can go really far in all the competitions. In the last year we didn’t win any trophies, so I think everyone is hungry to win more trophies, win more things, to keep our fans happy. Hopefully we will do this this season.”

Fabinho, 27, has spent three seasons at Anfield and has made 122 appearances. 

He now joins Trent Alexander-Arnold who also put pen to paper on a new deal committing his future to the club ahead of the 2021/22 football season.
