Fabinho names his best midfield partner after Liverpool contract extension

Fabinho has extended his stay at Liverpool by signing a new deal until 2026. The Brazilian has talked about his ideal midfield partner to Jurgen Klopp, after signing a renewal. Last season the 27-year-old played at centre-back but he admits he is happier in his natural defensive midfield position. Fabinho has also named Thiago as the player he likes playing alongside.
"Personally, I was happy because I could play again as a midfielder, so that was important for me," Fabinho told Liverpool's official website.   "Of course, I can play centre-back with no problem but I think I enjoy it a bit more when I came back to the midfield, played with Thiago and the boys in the middle, it was good."
  Fabinho's return to midfield also helped Thiago, who struggled to gain his fitness back after his transfer from Bayern Munich.   Source - mirror Join us on Telegram!/ Follow us on Twitter!
