Fabinho ‘Will Come Back’ Promises Klopp

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says midfielder Fabinho’s exile from the first team squad will not last much longer. The Brazilian is still waiting for his Liverpool debut.

Fabinho has not featured in the match day squad for the last three games, but Jurgen Klopp insists Liverpool’s busy September schedule will see him reintroduced.

“He could have been in the squad, of course, but it’s quite difficult to make the squad at the moment because they are all fit.

“It’s good to have the situation as one might need a bit of time, or the others are more used to it. That’s the only reason.

“But he will come back. And now we have games every three days, and he has made big steps in the last few weeks. He could even play at the moment.”

Klopp says Fabinho’s call up into the Brazil squad for September friendlies against the USA and El Salvador will help him build his case for inclusion.

““Hopefully now Fabinho has games with Brazil, and then after he comes back we have games, games, games,” added Klopp.

“We have the whole of September a lot of games, only against top teams. We need all of the players, that’s good.

“We have come through the period where it looked like we didn’t need all of them because we played quite a consistent line-up and the level in training was high.

“That’s all cool. Hopefully they all come back healthy as we have to use them all because of the number of games.”
