Liverpool are about to see the return of the Klopp brand and Fabinho knows why

Fabinho returned to Liverpool’s AXA training facility earlier this week, the Brazilian enjoying some time away from football after a difficult campaign on Merseyside. The 29-year-old midfielder has had difficult times throughout the season, failing to provide the players around him with the same safety in defence.

So it is perhaps no surprise that he is delighted to see two of his new teammates in the coming days, with Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai joining from Brighton and Hove Albion and RB Leipzig this summer. . The first is a very fit World Cup champion at the age of 24, and the second is the captain of his country and is considered one of the continent’s greatest talents.

Considering the two players enjoy playing in the middle of the park, it’s natural for Fabinho to be encouraged by their appearance. The South American hasn’t been himself in the past 12 months, but much of his apparent decline can be in fact rooted in the lack of support around him in the center.

“I think we have lost three midfielders that are really important to us in the last five or six years. It’s good to bring some good players into that position because we will need [them],” Fabinho told this week. “In the way we play, the intensity of the game, we always need not three or four but maybe six players in this position. [in the squad]. So it’s good to have these two players with us now. We’ve played against them so we know how good they are. It’s good to have them on the team.»

Indeed, Mac Allister and Szoboszlai could be set to form a trio in midfield with Fabinho, perhaps with Trent Alexander-Arnold creating a boxy shape if he continues to drift in from the back gap. his familiar right guard. Compared to last year, it looks like Fabinho will suddenly get a lot of support in the engine room, both in quantity and in proven quality.

When looking at Fabinho’s struggles last season, he’s mostly struggled with wide spaces, as Klopp’s signature pressing style isn’t as effective as it once was. With Liverpool putting high pressure on failing to protect players deeper in the team, Fabinho was often left in the dark.
