Fabinho has agreed to terms with Liverpool FC on a new long-term contract. “The midfielder put pen to paper on fresh terms at the Reds’ pre-season training camp in Evian on Tuesday,” Liverpool announced the transfer news on their official website.
In the summer of 2018 the Brazilian arrived from AS Monaco to Anfield at a £43m transfer deal. Making 122 appearances for the Reds’ he has been described as the team’s ‘lighthouse’ by assistant manager Pepijn Lijnders
“I’m delighted to have signed a new contract with the club,” Fabinho told Liverpoolfc.com. “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 27-year-old midfielder was a key figure in both Liverpool’s 2018-19 Champions League and 2019-20 Premier League winning sides. He continued: “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.”
