Liverpool signing Carvalho tribute to Fulham and Silva

Liverpool signing Fabio Carvalho has paid tribute to former club Fulham.

Carvalho was unveiled as a Liverpool player today.

He said of the Cottagers, "I owe a lot to them because I was there for eight or nine years and I managed to work my way all the way up to first-team level. They helped me every day on and off the pitch, they were really supportive and I owe a lot to them as well.

"It was an unbelievable experience because obviously it was my first full season as a professional footballer. Like any other player, there's highs and lows but it was just a great experience being able to establish myself in the first-team environment with all the great players at Fulham, who helped my every day as well. It was just an amazing feeling."

Asked if the style Fulham played helped catch Liverpool's eye, Carvalho added: "Yeah, because Marco Silva, the way he plays football and made us play football, is more like attacking football and getting goals, which is similar to how Liverpool play, which is to score goals and dominate games. That's what I'm here to do, to be able to help the team with my assists, creativity and goals. I'm looking forward to it."
