​Liverpool worry after Fabinho withdrawn from Brazil squad

Liverpool are having serious concerns about the fitness of midfielder Fabinho.

The Brazilian had been filling in at center half after the injury to Virgil Van Dijk.

But now he is out with a thigh problem that could keep him out for many games in November.

Now Brazil has not called him up for their international matches next month either.

It appears Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will not be able to call on Fabinho anytime soon.

"Everton midfielder Allan has been called up to the Brazil squad for the two upcoming qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup," the Selecao announced in a press statement.

"The player replaces Liverpool's Fabinho, who has withdrawn with a right thigh muscle injury.

"Rodrigo Lasmar, the Brazil national team doctor, received reports and the required information from the Liverpool medical department that confirmed Fabinho would be unable to participate in Brazil's upcoming fixtures."
