The 27-year-old Brazilian has become a permanent favorite at Anfield since moving from Monaco three years ago
Liverpool star Fabinho has committed his future to Anfield Road by signing a new five-year contract extension, the club confirmed on Tuesday.
The 27-year-old Brazilian joined Liverpool in 2018 and has proven to be a valuable utility player for the Reds, filling in as a center-back or right-back, as well as his preferred midfield role.
And after helping Jürgen Klopp to alleviate the injury crisis in defense last season, he was rewarded with a new contract until 2026.
What would be said?
“Fabinho has signed a new long-term contract with Liverpool FC,” the club announced on their official website.
“The midfielder put new terms on paper at the Reds training camp in Evian on Tuesday.”
Fabinho added: “I’m delighted to have signed a new contract with the club. I’ve been very positive from the start of the conversation because that’s what I wanted – to stay at this club, keep playing for Liverpool. Now this is it “officially and I’m really happy.
“I’ve been really happy here for the last three seasons. I’ve learned a lot with the coach, with all the staff and also with the boys.
“We achieved things together and for me this is the best place to keep growing, to learn from the staff and from the guys. Hopefully we will continue to achieve good things.”
“The manager and the employees urge us to do it because they know our capacities, they know our quality.
“Personally, as I said, I want to be the best for the team, I want to be an important part of this team – not just as a player, but also as a manager. Learn more from the guys and the staff and be the best, what I can.
“We know that we can go very far with these players in all competitions. We didn’t win any trophies last year, so I think everyone is hungry to win more trophies, to win more things, to keep our fans happy Hopefully we’ll do that this season. “
Now that Liverpool have signed a deal with Fabinho, Liverpool are trying to tie a handful of other senior first teams to extra time to keep Klopp’s famous Reds together.
Alisson, Virgil van Dijk – who is on the mend after missing almost the entire 2020/21 season due to injury – Mohamed Salah and Andy Robertson are the club’s priorities for renewal.
Otherwise, it was a quiet summer for Liverpool, with ex-RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate, the only commitment so far.
On the leaving front, Georginio Wijnaldum went to Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer, while the club have also tried to raise money by selling various secondary players, including young striker Harry Wilson, who joined Fulham.
