Klopp Reveals New Position Fabinho Told Him He Wants To Play

Liverpool are now in the next round of the Champions League after goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane saw them progress past RB Leipzig to reach the quarter-finals.

There was also a chance to see Fabinho back in his more familiar role in midfield, a position he has longed for since the injury to Virgil van Dijk.

But given the choice, the former Monaco man would pick his midfield position every time.   And Klopp admitted so after revealing all on a conversation he had in the tunnel with the 27-year-old.    

He said: “I told him on the way downstairs you like the position six more then? He said yeah. You couldn't show it more clear!  

“We all want Fab on the six. Tonight he played there and the two centre-halves played an incredible game, to be honest.

“The three in midfield worked really well together. Three up front. Diogo as long as he could. It was a sensible decision to not let play him 90.
