Roberto Firmino has been with us since 2015, but we still haven’t heard him speak in English very often – not that this is a problem with our beloved no.9.
But Fabinho, who also arrived at the club with limited English, appears to be picking up the language – as demonstrated by the clip below.
They say if you can joke in a language you’re more or less there!
It’s great to see the Brazilian fully integrated when you consider his difficult start. At the time last year, Fabinho still hadn’t got himself into the side and was already being labelled a flop.
Now, he’s probably the best holding midfielder in the Premier League.
Let’s hope Naby Keita can follow a similar path when he finally establishes himself as a starter.
