Fact; Fabinho was brought in to replace the outgoing Can.
He was here to fill in the void that Can left, but take into account he is not a like for like and has has a different skill set. As mentioned, Keita is more so the replacement for Can on paper.
Fact; Klopp said he can play the 2, 6 and 8 but in your agenda chasing desire to see what you thought was going to happen actually come true, you ignore that.
We get it, he can play 2, 6 and 8, but again, If you actually watched the player play before, you would know he is more suited as the deepest midfielder and can be considered a specialist rather than an 8/box-boxer , why is that so difficult to understand? Do you think we randomly assume he will take Hendo's position without watching him play previously?
Imagine buying Dybala and arguing with people that he is a winger without watching his previous matches (Dybala is more a false 9/2nd forward if you didn't know!) after Klopp saying he can play an 8, 7, 10 or 9.
Is it so wrong to think a player (from any league) we have watched can be better than our own and we can improve on him?
He'll play more than one position, he'll rotate with our other midfielders, but first he needs to show Klopp he's up to the job, and actually better than Henderson in the role.
Of course he can, but again, his skill sets are more suited to a 6 role, so one would assume he is here to take the 6 spot.
Say we bought Jorginho instead of Fabinho, would you not assume he would play the 6 role for us even if Klopp said he could play a sweeper, 6 or 8?
So far he has failed to do that despite your insistence after pre-season (and what kind of idiot judges a player on pre-season games) that he would come in straight away and transform the role.
Another lie, where did I judge him solely on pre-season games? Do you have proof? Just because you don't watch other matches (or even ours) doesn't mean I, or anyone else don't either. I guess people were stupid to think Robertson would be better than Moreno? Alisson than Karius, Salah than Mane etc etc.
And to be fair to Fabinho, when he has come in, he has given us something different to Henderson. We have more grit in the middle and his possession play is better (imo ofc), so yeah, he has transformed the role and given us something new.
Fabinho has it all to prove, both in training and in matches; it doesn't matter a f**k what he's done before, he needs to prove it all over again to his new employers, and again, so far he has failed.
To say that a player doesn't need to prove himself at a new club is absolute horseshit.
Of course he has it to prove, but why do you think Klopp bought Fabinho? Why that particular player when he could have gone for a more box-boxer (like Can) or a pass master? Do you not think Klopp knows what skill sets he brings to the table? Lol.
And who exactly is saying he doesn't need to prove himself at a new club? Please point me to that direction.
