Fabinho’s wife expressed her delight in a tweet in response to news of Fabinho’s new long-term contract with Liverpool.
The 27-year-old’s fresh terms will keep him in Merseyside until 2026, news that will likewise be music to supporters’ ears given how pivotal a role the Brazilian plays in Jurgen Klopp’s squad.

The Reds are thought to be focusing on handing new contracts to key stars whilst the club continues to offload those deemed surplus to requirements, with the likes of Virgil van Dijk and Mo Salah deemed likely to be offered lucrative new terms.
While new signings will undoubtedly be at the top of fans’ wishlists, there’s no questioning just how important this side of our business is, with key figures being secured beyond the end of Jurgen Klopp’s Anfield reign.
Should the German choose not to extend his stay in Merseyside, having a solid spine to hand over to his successor will be important in ensuring a relatively smooth transition to a new manager (as terrifying as that thought is at the moment).
