Fabinho feels settled and calm as he awaits his Liverpool debut – thanks to help from fellow Brazilian Roberto Firmino.
The midfielder has yet to make a competitive appearance for the Reds following a summer transfer from AS Monaco, as Jürgen Klopp made few changes in the four matches before the international break.
But Fabinho is working hard in training to become accustomed to the manager’s style of play while also getting used to his new surroundings with the support of his compatriots.
“My start has been good and the adaptation good. The pre-season was very good, we had nine friendlies and I played nine,” the 24-year-old told Globo Esporte.
“It was good to play against English teams to see what the rhythm, the intensity and the physique is like. I am adapting to the team’s style of play. The more experienced players have helped me, the technical team as well.
“Me and my wife are liking the city, we already have a home. Firmino is being a great guy, his family has given a good support to me and Alisson.
“It’s been fine. Having Brazilians in the team helps. Now it’s really to make the debut. I’m fine, training well and prepared.”
