NewsPepijn Lijnders on Fabio Carvalho future
Pepijn Lijnders has responded to reports Liverpool may look to recall Fabio Carvalho from his loan with RB Leipzig.
The 21-year-old joined the Bundesliga club on a season-long deal in June and has made 14 appearances in all competitions so far.
Asked about the possibility Carvalho may return to the Reds in January, Lijnders told his pre-West Ham United press conference: “It’s most important he finds rhythm; we all know a player with rhythm is a different player than a player without.
“A player with confidence or without confidence, and a player who trains in a certain way, is a different player. He needs to find minutes, but it’s not up to me, it’s up to our directors to speak with the club and find the best solution for him.
“We all want the best for him because he is our player, so wait and see but no decision [has been] made about that.”
