New Liverpool FC signing Fabinho has said that he and his family have settled quickly in Liverpool.

The Brazilian joined Liverpool FC from Monaco in the summer for a reported £40m fee, and he has praised fellow Brazilian’s at the club for easing his transition.

Some foreign players choose to leave their families in native speaking countries, but Fabinho has decided to bring his with him, a decision he does not regret.

He told Globo Esporte: “Me and my wife are liking the city, we already have a home.

“(Roberto) Firmino is being a great guy, his family has given 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.”

Fabinho has yet to appear for the Liverpool FC first-team in a competitive game, after having appeared nine times in pre-season for his new club.

His side have taken maximum points so far in the Premier League, and the Brazilian has found himself down the pecking order behind already-established players.

Testifying to the fact he and his family are settling well in Liverpool may ease worries of culture shock for boss Jürgen Klopp.

Adapting to a new city, a new league and a new style of play often presents problems for new players, especially with the physicality of the Premier League, and this may be the reason why Klopp has held Fabinho’s debut back.

However, as a utility player, the long Premier League season alongside European and cup football means that Fabinho should find opportunities easier to come by in the future.
