Fabinho will delight Liverpool fans with his blast at PSG


Liverpool star Fabinho has let rip at Paris Saint-Germain.

The £44million summer signing has dismissed suggestions he has any interest in leaving Anfield for a return to France, and has accused the French champions of dirty tactics.

The Brazil international had to initially bide his time on Merseyside and ahead of Liverpool’s trip to France for the Champions League meeting between the pair was linked with a switch to PSG.

Asked about speculation linking him with a move to the Parc des Princes earlier in the season, Fabinho took aim.



Fabinho’s not happy with PSG

Speaking to L’Equipe, the Brazilian said: “I never thought of going elsewhere.

“I know a lot of things were written in the newspapers, but it wasn’t true. What’s funny is that this PSG loan story came out just before our Champions League match [in November].

“And I had already experienced a similar story the day before the final of the Coupe de la Ligue between PSG and Monaco [in March 2018]. It’s a strange coincidence, isn’t it?”

The 25-year-old was part of the Monaco side that had beaten the Parisiens to the Ligue 1 title in 2017, and subsequently held talks over a move to the French capital.

Fabinho played at centre-half in the win over Brighton

“If I had to sign at PSG, it’s the year before it could have been done,” he admitted.

“They were very interested, I talked a lot with Antero and the club’s leaders, but it didn’t work.

“The year after, I did not wait for them. And then, I thought it was time to leave France.”

Fabinho has impressed at the heart of midfield since forcing his way into Jurgen Klopp’s plans earlier this term.

On Saturday he deputised at centre-half amid a glut of injuries and again shone, as the Reds kept a clean sheet in a 1-0 win over Brighton .
