Fabio Carvalho has already earned himself a new nickname with his teammates after joining Liverpool, it's hilarious

Liverpool youngster Fabio Carvalho already appears to have earned himself a new nickname after arriving from Fulham this summer.

As seen on LFCTV’s Inside Training video, Carvalho looks to have been dubbed ‘Bruno’ by his Liverpool teammates.

At one point, the former Fulham youngster sends a lovely shot into the back of the net, to shouts of ‘well done Bruno.’ Further on in the video, Carvalho drives down the wing as Liverpool players call for the ball using his new nickname.

The nickname seems to derive from the 19-year-old’s similarity to singer Bruno Mars. During Liverpool’s media day earlier in the week, Trent Alexander-Arnold said he was ‘passing the phone to someone who looks the spitting image of Bruno Mars.’

Funny stuff from the Liverpool players, and it will surely make Fabio feel at home in the group.

‘Bruno’ settles straight in at Liverpool

You’ve really been able to see the camaraderie within the Liverpool squad during this summer’s pre-season.

With a couple of new recruits joining up, the doors to The Red squad have been well and truly open. There’s been no standoffishness at all, both Carvalho and Darwin Nunez have been welcomed straight in.

In Carvalho’s case, it helps that he speaks fluent Portuguese. This has clearly allowed him to break down barriers with those players like Luis Diaz and Nunez who can’t yet speak English.

Meanwhile, his English roots have also meant that he can also connect with the rest of the squad easily.

This will have helped him as he makes the move from Fulham to Liverpool. It must have been daunting to make such a big move at such a young age.

Liverpool’s squad is littered with stars who are right at the very top of the world game. Going into that from a smaller club can’t be easy. But they’ve welcomed Carvalho in as though he was simply one of them.

As familiarity grows and he starts to establish himself on the pitch, ‘Bruno’ is only going to feel more and more at home.
