Thiago Alcantara has suggested his teammate Fabinho could be used as a defender at Liverpool even when Virgil van Dijk and co. are back from injury.
Fabinho was signed from Monaco as a utility man in 2018, with Jurgen Klopp knowing the talented Brazilian could play right-back, center-back and midfield.

The 27-year-old has found a home as a defensive midfielder in Klopp’s side, and he is fondly known as the flagship of Liverpool.

But an unprecedented number of injuries at Liverpool this season has forced Klopp to face Fabinho in different positions, including center-back.

The Brazilian has performed well when he played out of position, and Thiago believes his Liverpool teammate could play more regularly in defense in the future.

“I think Fabio, you can already count on him as a defender because this defensive function is one of his virtues,” Thiago told ESPN Brasil.

“He played like that before, before being the defensive midfielder. You lose a midfielder, it’s having a weakness that you had in the midfield before, now, with him, it is a consistency that he gives. “

“And the freedom to be able to play more. I think we’re all capable of playing the part, but Fabio is what he does in the best possible way. “

Thiago joined Liverpool after winning the Champions League with Bayern Munich. The Reds, meanwhile, won a first Premier League title that same season.

At Liverpool, Thiago added: “The greatest quality of this team, I talk to them before I play, is the year-to-year resilience that Liverpool had before winning the titles.

“That resilience was evolving, winning more and more titles this year, the same.

“With the lack of fans, the team has to give that extra change to compete for the title. Despite this, the team wants to keep winning, scoring goals. It is essential, that the team continues with this hunger intact. “
