Liverpool midfielder Fabinho insists he has no intention of leaving the club despite rumors of a move back to France to join Paris Saint-Germain.
The former AS Monaco man is still getting used to life in England after having signed for Liverpool from Monaco in the summer transfer window.
Fabinho has had to wait for regular first team chance under Jurgen Klopp this season. The Brazilian got his first of English league football when he came on as a substitute during the 1-0 win over Huddersfield back in October.
He has since found a way to overcome a slow start and becoming a more regular appearances in the first team for Klopp’s men.
However, news of a potential departure from Liverpool next season coupled with French champions PSG touted as a possible destination but for now though, the player himself has insisted that he has no reason to try and quit the Merseyside club.
Asked about the PSG reports, Fabinho told UOL, as quoted by FourFourTwo:
“I was told there was something in the press, but I never said I’d like to leave Liverpool.”
“I knew I would need to have the patience to wait for my moment. I’m happy at Liverpool. There is no reason for me to leave.”
Fabinho also spoke about the number of minutes he is receiving so far on the pitch saying:
“He [Klopp] didn’t give me a lot of explanations but I talked in training so I wouldn’t be discouraged and to stay focused on my work, without letting my head drop.”
“I knew it was a passing moment. I didn’t keep moaning and crying. I tried to work because I knew opportunities would come. Now I just want to increase my number of games.”
