Liverpool fans were jumping for joy when the club announced the signing of Fabinho from AS Monaco.

The Reds had lost the Champions League final just days before the Brazilian's arrival was announced on their official social media channels.

Fabinho had forged a reputation out in France as a skilful defensive midfielder capable of dictating the play, tackling and even contributing with goals.

However, the one time Real Madrid man has barely had a sniff at Liverpool so far, with his only start coming in the Carabao Cup against Chelsea.

He was sluggish that night and it was clear to everyone that he was not ready for the intensity of the Premier League - unlike fellow summer signing Naby Keita.

So how does Fabinho feel about the whole situation? Well, he's spoken about it while on International duty with Brazil and he's been very honest.

"I have adapted very much to his way of working," he told Goal. "I hope to continue working steadily more and gaining his trust.

"From the start he gave me a lot of peace, he said he knows my quality. The preparation was good, we worked well, we did not have much time in the games, but we're working hard during the week.

"For me, it's not a problem. Not only Klopp, but the whole coaching staff has helped me in the adaptation - and not only on the field, but also out of the field.

"They have helped me and been patient with me.

"Of course I want to be playing. However, I know I am on a new team in a new league, and it has its period of adaptation.

"I already know the way our coach likes to play. I'm happy here in Liverpool, I hope that I will gradually gain a few minutes on the field, the adaptation on the pitch is good, and I’m working and calm, waiting for my moment to arrive."

It seems Liverpool fans have nothing to worry about with Fabinho's state of mind.

He seems happy and already on board with what Klopp needs and what the Reds are all about.

With James Milner absent with a hamstring injury, Fabinho may finally get his time to shine in the Premier League against Huddersfield.
