Fabinho turned to friends and God as he considered whether to join Liverpool this summer.
The former Monaco star asked his friends to pray for him in order to receive guidance and direction about whether to accept the offer to move to Anfield.
"He sent a WhatsApp audio message to his friends back home," Fabinho's friend Paul Conrado told The Sun. "Asking them to pray for God to give him guidance and direction about which decision to make.
"He said he wanted to know that going to Liverpool was the will of God for his life.
"He wanted to feel peace about it and said he wouldn't do it if he didn't feel God wanted it."
