Premier League transfer round-up: Klopp excited by Fabinho move

2018-05-30 13:19

Cape Town - Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was quick to show his excitement at the signing of midfielder Fabinho from French side Monaco.

"We have signed a fantastic player, but someone who is an equally fantastic person I think," the manager told the club's website.

"His reputation as a character in the dressing room and his attitude in training has come through from everyone we speak to.

"He has the ability and mentality to play at the highest level in a number of positions. He can play '6', '8' and '2'. This is cool.

"He is tactically very strong and football smart. I think he improves our squad and there aren’t that many players you can say that about in this moment, because the quality we have already is so high.

The Brazilian will join Liverpool following the Soccer World Cup in Russia, the French Ligue 1 club and the Premier League giants announced on Monday.'
