Liverpool midfielder Fabinho says he is satisfied with his debut season in the Premier League after enduring a slow start. The Brazil international signed for the Reds last summer from Monaco and had to be patient as Jurgen Klopp tinkered with his squad.
Fabinho had to wait until October before he became a regular member of Klopp’s side but still made 28 appearances in the top flight. He ended the campaign as the club’s main holding midfielder and the 25-year-old says it was worth the wait as he looks to kick on next season.

“Overall I think my first season at Liverpool was good,” Fabinho told the club’s official website. “In my first season I knew there would be a learning and settling-in period. I went through this. “It didn’t last that long but I remember it wasn’t easy starting afresh, I was left out for a few matches.
Even though I was telling myself that I needed to work hard and be patient, it’s not easy being out of the team. But that’s in the past now, I started playing more. “The more you play, the more you can enjoy your football. I think I became an important part of the team, I gave the manager another option he could depend upon. So I think it was a really good season.”11 BUSINESS NUGGETS FROM SUPER EAGLES BRONZE MEDAL TRIUMPH. The content of this ebook will propel you above your competition. DOWNLOAD NOW!!!
