Fabinho admits joining Liverpool a career best decision

Fabinho admits joining Liverpool was a career best decision.

Fabinho made his 100th Liverpool appearance in Sunday's draw with West Brom at Anfield and revealed in a long interview with the official Liverpool website how his move to Merseyside - which came just days after the Reds' heartbreaking Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid in Kiev in May 2018 - was a momentous moment in his career.

“For me personally, it was a really special feeling because in my career I always wanted to progress, so a move from Monaco to Liverpool was something great for this moment in my career," the former Monaco midfielder said.

“So, on a personal level, it was a good day for me. I'd watched the Liverpool-Real Madrid game on TV and I was supporting Liverpool, but unfortunately, they didn't win.

“That for me, though, was the beginning of a new history. I didn't see anyone when I came to Melwood, which might have been a good thing because maybe they'd have been angry they'd lost the final, but it was a good moment for the club to play a Champions League final after a long time.

“And it was definitely a good day for me because I signed for this big club."

Of his future, Fabinho added: “You have a little idea of what it's like when you are outside, but when you are inside you really get to know why this club is special. I am lucky and blessed to play for Liverpool and living in this club is something very good.

“It is very special to play for this club and hopefully I will play many more games."
