Liverpool manager Klopp nicknames in-form midfield ace.

Updated: Oct 31, 2019

Jürgen Klopp has a new nickname for Fabinho after 'unbelievable' Spurs display.

Jurgen Klopp praised Fabinho’s ‘unbelievable’ performance against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

The midfielder put in a Man of the Match display to help the Premier League leaders secure a 2-1 comeback win against Spurs at Anfield. And, that led to Klopp highlighting the Brazilian’s influence on his team.

“You saw it, both wings were so strong with the triangles we created there: with Sadio, Robbo and Gini on one side, with Hendo, Mo and Trent on the other side,” Klopp told

“And then ‘Dyson’ in the centre, who was there for each ball defensively – what a game he played, unbelievable! Connecting with Bobby in the centre… I love the game, to be honest. 

“I said to the boys after the game that I didn’t expect it that good, to be honest, before the game. I thought we are ready to show up a little bit again after being away [from Anfield] on tour for a little while, after Leicester I think – that feels long ago. 

“But that was exceptionally good, and necessary because Tottenham was here today to get three points. The way they set up, line-up-wise offensively, really offensive, but set-up-wise just compact and organised and the counter-attacks are incredible. 

“I have to say that’s really tough to defend and apart from twice we did it really well so I am really happy.”
