Fabinho has poured cold water on suggestions that he could quit Liverpool FC to sign for Paris Saint-Germain.
The Brazilian midfielder has been slowly getting used to life at Anfield after having signed for the Reds from Monaco in the summer transfer window.
Fabinho was made to wait for regular first team opportunities under Jurgen Klopp this season.
The 25-year-old midfielder got his first taste of Premier League football when he came on as a substitute during the 1-0 win over Huddersfield back in October.
He has since been making more regular appearances in the first team for Klopp’s men.
However, that has not prevented rumours suggesting that he could be on his way out of Liverpool FC next year, with PSG touted as a possible destination.
Now though, the player himself has insisted that he has no reason to try and quit Liverpool FC.
Asked about the PSG reports, Fabinho told UOL, as quoted by FourFourTwo: “I was told there was something in the press, but I never said I’d like to leave Liverpool,” he told UOL when asked about the PSG reports.
“I knew I would need to have patience to wait for my moment. I’m happy at Liverpool. There is no reason for me to leave.”
Fabinho also insisted that he did not worry too much about his lack of playing time under Klopp at the start of the season.
He continued: “He [Klopp] didn’t give me a lot of explanations but I talked in training so I wouldn’t be discouraged and to stay focused on my work, without letting my head drop.
“I knew it was a passing moment. I didn’t keep moaning and crying. I tried to work because I knew opportunities would come. Now I just want to increase my number of games.”
Fabinho will be hoping to feature for Liverpool FC when they return to Premier League action on Saturday lunchtime with a trip to Bournemouth.
