Fabinho did feature in a number of games last season, but the 25 year old did not get all the headlines. His presence in the Liverpool team is so vital in the sense that he fills those little gaps, which opens up, with so many players attacking in the pace they does.
He might not grab all the headlines and score those fantastic goals, but the Brazilian signed from Monaco for a fee of £39million looks as one of the greatest players to really shine in the start of this season. The Liverpool team are flying at the moment and Fabinho is the cleaner of the baseement or floor if you like.
Signed by Real Madrid at a very early age, coming in from Portugal and Rio Ave, after agreeing a move from Fluminense. He never played a single game at noen of his first clubs, but instead moved on to Real, were he only featured once.
A move to Monaco finally made him a first team regular. He played 167 league games in French football before Liverpool decided they wanted him at Anfield. Since joining in the summer before last season, he has a total of 31 league game for Liverpool.
Fabinho made his debut for the national team back in 2015, but his international duties has been few and with a total of only eight caps so far for Brazil. Watch Fabinho, he will be important in the future, a great defensive midfielder, still only 25.
