“I am happy to have signed a new contract with the club,” Fabinho told Liverpoolfc.com. “From the beginning of the conversation I was really positive about it, because that’s what I wanted – to stay at this club, to continue playing for Liverpool. Now it’s official and I’m really happy.
“I’ve been really happy here for the last three seasons. I’ve learned a lot with the manager, with the whole staff, with the boys too.
“We have achieved things together and for me I think this is the best place to be, the best place to keep growing, to keep learning from the staff, from the boys. We hope that we will continue to achieve good things. “
Fabinho’s previous terms were due to expire in the summer of 2023, and his renewal is part of Liverpool’s plan to bind the futures of several experienced players in the coming months.
England defender Trent Alexander-Arnold is already committed to a long-term extension, while Mohamed Salah, Virgil Van Dyke, Alison Becker and Andy Robertson could also be on the line for new deals.
