Fabinho reveals Jurgen Klopp’s favourite Liverpool player

Fabinho has spilled some insider knowledge of the Liverpool dressing room, revealing Virgil van Dijk is Jurgen Klopp’s favourite as he took some cheeky digs at team-mate Joel Matip.

The 27-year-old staged an Instagram Q&A from his sun lounger beside the pool, even entertaining fans with his impression of a Scouse accent.

Asked ‘who’s the gaffer’s favourite?’ Fabinho simply replied ‘VVD’, Anfield’s big Dutch centre-back.

Van Dijk is still making the final steps of his rehabilitation after suffering an ACL injury in October, and Klopp will be desperate to have his defensive rock back.

The impact of the star’s injury last season certainly justifies the German’s favouritism.
According to the Daily Mail, the Brazilian was also asked for his favourite tackle of his career, attaching a shot of his wild lunge on Luis Suarez in the 2018-19 Champions League semi-final with the words ‘just ball ref.’

The challenge earned him a booking, but wiping-out the former Liverpool striker on the way to a 4-0 win on that memorable Anfield night will only be a sweet memory.
