    Some quotes from Fabinho's interview for 'De Sola' youtube channel

    [​IMG]
    I know that someone else translated another Fabinho interview not long ago, but I was watching this one he gave a few days ago for a quite popular yt channel here in Brazil, and I thought you'd like some of the things he said - that he didn't say in the interview for Globo Esporte: (Here's the video for those who understand portuguese)

    On who's the "most brazilian" out of the foreign Liverpool players: "Alberto Moreno, for sure." He said Moreno knows more brazilian songs than him "I'm not even exagerating, it's the truth"

    On how was that to "put Messi in his pocket" (most of the questions came from social media btw): "I don't know if I put him in my pocket, gotta respect the man. He was the best I've ever faced. I think especially on the 2nd leg I managed to protect really well the area he plays and it was not easy.. he's unpredictable." "I saw people saying he disappeared on the game but the 4 opportunities Barça had came from him. He's a really unique guy, but there was a moment I noticed that Barcelona (players) waited and looked for him so I just started to close his area to not let the ball get to him - cause it's a problem if it does"

    On if they believed that they could win the 2nd game against Barça: "Even before the first game I told Firmino: 'In Anfield we gonna swallow these guys up'" (he also told about Klopp talking to him in the dressing room after the 1st game and how everyone was very confident before the 2nd match)

    On not being called up for Brazil NT: He said he's not trying to understand it anymore he's already in peace with it. His family's help made it easier to deal with it.

    On the hypotetical scenary where his performances had something to do with him not being called up - even though they didn't - how he thinks he could improve to be called up: "I'm focusing now in improving at Liverpool... There's a lot of people who knows me and say that I should shoot more from the outside of the box.. it's one of the things I want to get better at. I want to be more important in the offensive part of Liverpool's game. The year of adapting is over, from now on I want to get better as a player for Liverpool and I believe it will also improve my chances to get in the NT."

    On if the players and Klopp talked to him after he didn't get called up: "yes. I was actually surprised by how many people came to talk to me. I spoke to Firmino, he was like 'Don't worry mate. it happens..' Klopp sent a message .. I really didn't expect that.. he said 'I don't get it. You deserved it. But relax.." *then he joked that Klopp also didn't want to lose a player (mentally) as it was right before the UCL final.*
    "Gini commented 'Fabinho?' when Liverpool IG page posted about Alisson and Firmino being called up. Then on the next day he said 'Fabinho, I was about to go to Brazil's IG page and comment a lot of times 'where's Fabinho?'' then I was like 'mate, stop that' (laughs)"

    On who he thinks is going to be the Ballon D'Or winner: "I think it'll be Van Dijk. Especially after our Champions League title.. after our win vs Barcelona. I thought Messi would win it, but I think that loss affected Barça too much.. they even lost the Copa Del Rey final."

    On if he dribbles VVD on trainning: "I'm usually on his team, thank God." "The only guy I've ever seen winning a ball from him on training was Firmino. Only once."

    On which foreign Liverpool player he'd like to see the most in the brazilian NT: *The interviewer joked that he should choose himself, cause, like a lot of brazilians say on social media, maybe Tite thinks he isn't brazilian - that made Fab crack up* "A guy I really like is Mané, he's a great player" "There were like 7 or 8 games in a roll that he was always scoring, we just knew 'just pass the ball to Mané that 'something' gonna happen'" "If he was brazilian he'd make some damage playing along side Firmino in the attack - as they already know each other" .

    Hope we keep him for the rest of his career.  He's the best DM we've had since Didi.

    The great thing about that interview is it seems to show a top Brazilian player coming into the prime of his career who is totally committed to improving himself here.

    Between that and the Brazilian commentators calling Firmino 'Bobby', maybe there is more of a chance of great players settling here. Maybe the fact that a few have done well and won the CL here while Coutinho is wandering round with a face like a slapped arse wondering who he'll play for next season has changed the psychology a bit.

    Wishful thinking perhaps

    The slow start  was followed by some immense performances.  Lucas is a distant memory.

    He's a better DM than Hendo. But I don't think of it as 'shown him up', because Hendo was filling in there to help the team, it's not his best position.

    New hendo is better further forward.  Lucas shouldn't be mentioned in the same breath as fab. The only thing being shown up is the stupidity of putting hendo at dm to begin with and sticking by this early season,  that's on Klopp.  Klopp always gets it right in the end as can been seen by vvd / alison signings

    Huh?
    Anyway, yeah it was a mistake by Klopp playing him there. For many it was glaringly obvious. Hendo played at DM for too long before the change happened imo.

    @Modo, you're doing well, getting on fine with folks, and then do you just get bored and decide to fuck people off as much as possible with your boring fucking bullshit?

    It's a legitimate discussion, Hendo has been great at CM, but having Fabs at DM has to be one of the reasons we won the CL or came so close to the league?
    I'm not trying to rile anyone up. Fabs was an improvement on Lucas and also an improvement on Henderson, that's all I'm saying.

    Course it legitimate discussion, more so since the tactical shift.  The old buggers on here want silence debate, as usual.
