Fabinho full of pride bringing Prem title to Liverpool

Fabinho is full of pride after helping Liverpool win a first Premier League title this season.

Jürgen Klopp's team wrote another chapter in the club's illustrious history books this past season when they ended a 30-year wait for the top-flight crown.

Having also secured European Cup No.6 and the FIFA Club World Cup, Fabinho is excited at the thought of the class of 2019-20 being idolised in decades to come.

"It's very important to us," the Brazilian told Liverpoolfc.com. "We may not have realised this importance yet but I think we will always be remembered because we were the first Liverpool squad to win the championship since it became the Premier League.

"This club has a lot of history and has won many trophies as well, but this one is perhaps a little bit more special due to the long period we've spent without a league title.

"Liverpool supporters have been waiting for this title for a long time and unfortunately they could not be inside the stadium with us, but certainly everyone in their houses celebrated a lot.

"We absolutely have to celebrate because the way we conquered, with the huge points difference between us and second place, is really something to celebrate."
