Fabinho insists no Liverpool regrets

But the Brazilian is hopeful that he will soon make his first appearance in a red shirt after insisting that his start to life at Anfield has been "very good" in an interview with Globo Esporte, as reported by Sport Witness.

After starring in each of Liverpool's nine pre-season games, the 24-year-old midfielder has been overlooked in each of their opening four Premier League outings.

As Jurgen Klopp's side continue their 100% start to the season, many have forgotten about new signing Fabinho, who is yet to play a single minute for Liverpool in the league despite featuring all pre-season.

Now looking to see game time with his country during the worldwide break, he told Globo Esporte of his early experiences in England: "My start has been good, good adaptation".

"It was good to play against English teams to see what the rhythm, the intensity and the physique are like".

It's hugely important. Ten times out of ten I find that the best players have an appetite to learn.

Fabinho added: "My wife and I are enjoying the city, we already have a home". Firmino is being a great guy, his family has given good support to me and Alisson.

"But what's really going to help is that I play and play very often for my club". Having Brazilians in the team helps. Now it's really to make the debut.

"I will work hard and be prepared when I get my chance".

With four wins win from four, Klopp will not be rushing Fabinho in and admitted recently he felt his new signing was not ready for English football. And now we have games every three days, and he has made big steps in the last few weeks. I won't name names, but I can think of seven or eight occasions where players turned up and you could see they had no interest in learning the language. "It has a much higher visibility than Ligue 1 in France", he said. It is not about who we play but about how we play. "It never was but it is all fine".
