Jurgen Klopp drops Fabinho's season debut date

Jurgen Klopp has hinted Fabinho is not far from making his season debut this month

Following his £40million move from Monaco, Fabinho is yet to make an appearance for Liverpool since the beginning of the new season despite the games he was granted during the preseason.

Fabinho has only made Liverpool bench in their Premier League opener against West Ham United, since then the Brazilian has not been called up.

Lfc rumourThe 24-year-old is now expected to join Brazil squad for their forthcoming international friendlies against the United States on Saturday and El Salvador four days later.

And Jurgen Klopp has hinted the Brazilian could kickoff action with the Reds when he returns from international duties.

When asked about what went wrong with Fabinho, Klopp told reporters: “Nothing. The team is good and he needs time.

"He could have been in the squad, of course, but it's quite difficult to make the squad at the moment because they are all fit.

"It's good to have the situation as one might need a bit of time, or the others are more used to it. That's the only reason.

"But he will come back. And now we have games every three days, and he has made big steps in the last few weeks. He could even play at the moment."

The Reds are set for a tight schedule this month with five fixtures ahead and Klopp is hopeful Fabinho would be part of such hectic imminent schedule.

Klopp added: "Hopefully now Fabinho has games with Brazil, and then after he comes back we have games, games, games.

"We have the whole of September a lot of games, only against top teams. We need all of the players, that's good.

"We have come through the period where it looked like we didn't need all of them because we played quite a consistent line-up and the level in training was high. That's all cool. Hopefully they all come back healthy as we have to use them all because of the number of games."
