Fabinho has revealed that he is “unsure” how long an untimely injury at Liverpool will keep him stuck on the sidelines.
The versatile Brazilian has joined Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip in the treatment room, with Fabinho sitting out Reds’ last three games.
He was laid low in the wake of an FA Cup fourth-round defeat to Manchester United and concedes no timescale is being put on his recovery.
The 27-year-old, who is nursing a muscle complaint, told Liverpool’s official matchday programme:
“I had a slight discomfort in training so we decided that I shouldn't play against Tottenham or West Ham.
“I started undergoing my recovery straightaway and I'm feeling a lot better than I was at the start of last week and hopefully I'll have the opportunity to come back for these games we have coming up.
“We're not exactly sure how long I will be out but I'm working hard to be back playing as soon as possible.”
