​Liverpool midfielder, Fabinho, has slammed Paris Saint-Germain for implementing ‘dirty tactics’ to get in the head of their opponents. 

The Brazilian, who produced yet another stellar performance in Saturday’s 1-0 win at Brighton, was linked with a loan move to PSG, incidentally just ahead of Liverpool’s trip to France for their Champions League group stage meeting. 

When asked about the speculated move to the Parc des Princes earlier this season, Fabinho let rip at the Ligue 1 holders. 

Speaking to L’Equipe, as per Mirror, the Brazilian said: “I never thought of going elsewhere.”

“I know a lot of things were written in the newspapers, but it wasn’t true. What’s funny is that this PSG loan story came out just before our Champions League match [in November].”

“And I had already experienced a similar story the day before the final of the Coupe de la Ligue between PSG and Monaco [in March 2018]. It’s a strange coincidence, isn’t it?”

Fabinho held talks with PSG in the summer of 2017 but ended up staying put at Monaco. 

He went on: “If I had to sign at PSG, it’s the year before it could have been done.”

“They were very interested, I talked a lot with Antero and the club’s leaders, but it didn’t work. The year after, I did not wait for them. And then, I thought it was time to leave France,” he concluded.
