Liverpool midfielder Fabinho has been interviewed by the Brazilian edition of Goal this week.
After beating Porto in Portugal and getting a spot in the Champions League semifinals, the midfielder now switches his focus to the Premier League, saying the Reds must beat Cardiff City at the weekend.
Asked by reporter Goal Bruno Andrade if he could enjoy the 4-1 win at the Estádio do Dragão and breathe a little, Fabinho said: “No, we can’t. We live a good moment, a decisive moment in the season, so we need to do our best.
“We are getting to win the important games. On Sunday we already have one more important match in the Premier League. Of course we can enjoy the victories a little, but we are always thinking about the next opponent.”
The player doesn’t really want to say that Liverpool are the best team in Europe right now, despite the good scoring rate they have.
“We don’t know if we are the strongest, we have a realistic team. Against Porto, for example, we suffered a little at the beginning of the game, but we scored the goals in the opportunities we found.”
Fabinho has also spoken about not having a song from Liverpool fans yet.
“If I deserve a chant? This I leave with the fans. I try to do my best on the pitch. If the fans are liking what I’ve done, and they want to create a song for me, let’s do it. They have enough creativity for this.”
Liverpool now face Cardiff City in the Premier League on Sunday. After that, they play Huddersfield Town, Barcelona, Newcastle United, Barcelona once again, and then Wolverhampton Wanderers for the final fixture of the Premier League.
Maybe there’s a Champions League final to be included in that schedule too.
Enough games to get a chant or two in for Fabinho.
