Should Liverpool’s Fabinho be comparing himself to Busquets?

Liverpool’s Brazilian midfielder Fabinho believes he is similar to Casemiro, Rodri and even Barcelona legend Sergio Busquets.

Fabinho, took his time to settle at Liverpool. But now he has become a key player for Jurgen Klopp and his record-breaking side.

His stats show him a regular in the side, but hardly electrifying.

It’s fair to say he has done a decent job, but does he compare to Real’s Casemiro?

Is he even close?

What about the legendary Sergio Busquets at Barcelona?

In an interview with El Pais, the Brazilian explains the role that Jurgen Klopp has assigned him and even suggests he is similar to the aforementioned players.

He said:

“I like to organize and try to make good passes.”

“I have good vision when I receive the ball in the opposition half of the field.”

“If I have space, I also want to be offensively important.”

“But my first task must be defensive.”

“Casemiro, Rodri, Busquets, we have a similar role. “

Here’s a comparison, but it’s probably not the one he was thinking of.
