Reds fans take to Twitter to mark Fabinho’s one-year anniversary at Anfield

Reds fans take to Twitter to mark Fabinho’s one-year anniversary at Anfield

The Brazilian has been a major success since joining the Reds in a big-money deal last summer

Just two days after the bitter disappointment of losing the Champions League final to Real Madrid last year, Liverpool were quick to give their loyal fans a bit of a sweetener. The Reds announced that they had signed Fabinho from AS Monaco in a £39m deal, and after a slow start to his Anfield career, the midfielder has well and truly become one of the mainstays of Jurgen Klopp’s side.

To mark the Brazilian’s arrival, the Reds posted a video homage on Twitter to the day they signed the 25-year-old, with the caption ‘one year ago today…’ After being predominantly kept out of the limelight by Klopp in the opening months of the season, Fabinho well and truly stamped his authority on the team come the turn of the year. Taking to the Premier League’s more intense physical demands like a duck to water, the signing has proven to be another masterstroke by those on the red half of Merseyside.

Upon hearing of the landmark day, Reds fans took to social media to sing the midfielder’s praises, and labelled the Brazil international as ‘unreal’. Some even suggested that Fabinho could himself as the ‘best defensive midfielder in the world’, and that after the heartbreak of Kiev last year, the signing represented ‘clever business’.
