The Liverpool footballer believes the Brazilian current level is the best in the English Premier League and how he loves his work.

Fabinho and company have worked hard to put Liverpool in the first place of the English Premier League.

The team is one of the favorites to lift the prestigious trophy at the end of the 2018-2019 season.

And for footballer Naby Keita part of this success is thanks to Fabinho.

“I’m very happy for him. At the beginning he wasn’t playing much but he worked hard, he never gave up and he was always there for the team. The last match, he put in a great performance,” Keita told the club’s official website.

“That’s what we’re here for – to work hard and try to earn our place in the team. Midfield is an area where we have a lot of options, so that means no-one wants to get injured or give up their place.”

“That’s an important thing for the team. When you’re in the team you know already how strong the bench is so you need to give absolutely everything in the game,” he commented.

“I wasn’t surprised at all by Fabinho’s performance. In training the coach is there for everyone and training is always good. It’s down to us to keep focused and play well in every match.”

“All my teammates have always been there for me, but of course I am close to Sadio, he has helped me an awful lot,” Keita explained.

“He has spoken to me a lot and given me a lot of advice because he is more experienced.”

“I’m someone who likes to respond to a challenge, I never give up or stop trying, even if things were a little bit more difficult at the beginning,” he commented.

“I was in and out of the side but I was always with the team because if the team win, we all win together – even if I haven’t played. I have a collective spirit.”
