Liverpool midfielder Fabinho signed a new contract extension with the club that should keep him at Anfield until at least 2026.
Fabinho was unveiled as a surprise signing back in May 2018, just 48 hours after The Reds lost to Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Kyiv.
Yesterday, Liverpool announced that the Brazil international has put pen to paper on a new deal with the club until 2026.
Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com, a clearly upbeat Fabinho described his happiness at securing a new deal with the club he has fallen in love with over the past three years:
“I’m delighted to have signed a new contract with the club.
“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.”
Still only 27, Fabinho likely has his best years ahead of him at the base of Liverpool’s midfield. It’s fair to say he is eyeing further success at the club in the near future.
“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.”
Fabinho has won the Premier League, Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup since moving to Merseyside in 2018.
