- Match Analysis
Fabinho has been performing for Monaco brilliantly and one of the reasons for Monaco’s successful campaign last year including league win over their rivals Paris Saint-Germain and a Semi-finals finish, first time since 2004.
The Brazilian is a very versatile player with the ability to play both in right-back position and in midfield. He was one of the key players Monaco managed to hold on with key players like Mbappe and Silva leaving the club.
He has been linked with a move to rivals Paris Saint-Germain and even reports claiming that the club has made contacts with him for a potential move in the summer. PSG are in 1st position in the league and 17 points ahead of Monaco.
But Fabinho has denied the reports that PSG has made contact with him and is not paying attention to any transfer speculations. He wants to focus on matters on the field.
“Speaking the truth, I have had no contact with any team and I do not even care at the moment,” Fabinho told Globo Esporte.
“I’m concentrating on finishing the season well at Monaco and then, when it’s time, I’ll sit down with the club and if I have to listen to any proposal, we’ll listen.”
On Monaco’s defeat to PSG in the showpiece for the second year in succession, Fabinho said: “When you concede a goal early in the game makes it much more difficult, they have a great team.
“We tried to press and it did not work, they came out really well and with a lot of quality. Another year and, unfortunately, we cannot win against them.
“But we will go forward and fight to ensure second place in the championship.”
It will be huge boost for Monaco as they are looking to rebuild their team after losing so many important players last summer.
