Liverpool fans are concerned that Fabio Carvalho may not play for the club again following his comments about manager Jurgen Klopp.
Carvalho joined Liverpool from Fulham last summer in a deal reportedly worth £5 million. However, his time at Anfield was challenging as he struggled to make a significant impact, making only four starts in the Premier League.
Across all competitions, he managed 22 appearances and scored three goals during the season.
In a bid to gain more playing time on the pitch, Carvalho joined German Bundesliga side RB Leipzig on loan ahead of the 2023/24 campaign.
The player’s comments about Jurgen Klopp may have raised concerns among Liverpool fans, leading to speculation about his future with the club.
Whether these concerns will prove valid or not remains to be seen, but Carvalho’s loan move suggests that he is seeking more opportunities elsewhere to further his development as a young footballer.
However, Liverpool fans feel the midfielder’s Anfield career could potentially be over after his comments on Klopp.
Whilst speaking toThe Athletic, Carvalho was asked whether he got any advice from the Liverpool boss ahead of his loan move.
He said: “I don’t really speak to him, so he didn’t give me any advice.
“I have to just learn as I go and I don’t think that’s a bad thing. I feel like that’s better anyway, for me to mature as a person and as a player.”
Fans were quick to react on social media.
One said: “And people still think Carvalho will play for us. He’s gone next season.”
Another tweeted: “Yeah he’s done at LFC. I feel bad for him hopefully he kicks on and has a good career.”
A third fan added: “Yea, have a feeling he ain’t coming back.”
Someone else wrote: “That kind of attitude can you in trouble with many other managers not just Klopp.”
Whilst a fifth commented: “He should forget about his Liverpool dream as far as Klopp is still the manager.”
On why he found it difficult during his first season with Liverpool, Carvalho said: “I feel like the reason it hasn’t worked at Liverpool is because of the position I have been playing.
“I was told I’d come in and play as a 10 but [Liverpool] don’t really play with a 10 whereas here we play with two 10s.”
