'Beautiful': Liverpool fans react with pure joy to Fabinho contract

Liverpool announced a new contract for Fabinho on Tuesday that saw fans react with glee. The Brazilian is tied down for the foreseeable future.

Fabinho has a new contract with Liverpool. The Reds announced the deal on Tuesday.

It’s for five years, per the Athletic, effectively tying down the player for his prime years. In that sense, it’s one of the most important pieces of business Liverpool could do this summer.

Fabinho is one of the few stars who is right in the middle of his prime. Most are either pushing 30 and moving out of theirs or, like Trent Alexander-Arnold, still very young.

Liverpool guarantee themselves a world-class player for the next five years with this contract. Fabinho is someone the Reds can build a midfield around and comfortably rely on for the duration of the deal.

It’s fantastic to see and well worth shouting about. Liverpool fans certainly did that, with many jumping on Twitter to react to the Fabinho contract.

But still, this is certainly worthy of celebration. Fabinho is a Liverpool player and that isn’t changing anytime soon.
