Liverpool legend Graeme Souness still has some doubts over Fabinho, despite his recent promising displays
The Brazilian midfielder arrived at Anfield last summer for £43.7m from AS Monaco, but struggled to break into the team at the beginning.
Nowadays though, Fabinho has become a prominent member of the Liverpool squad and was praised for his impressive performance in their 3-1 win over Manchester United last month.
But Souness still has some surprise doubts over the 25-year-old.
“I believe Liverpool will bounce back,” Souness wrote in his Sunday Times column.
“They don’t have what I would call milky players. Before the season began they identified midfield as an area that needed strengthening and brought in Fabinho and Naby Keita.
“I am yet to be fully convinced by Fabinho and wonder why it has taken such a long time for him to get up to speed.
“He has played well since getting into the team but he still has a bit to go.
“Liverpool have a team that is well equipped to deal with the challenges coming their way.”
Jurgen Klopp’s side will take on Wolves in the FA Cup tonight at 20:45 (CET).
