Ex-Liverpool star Fabinho brutally trolled for ‘disgraceful’ tackle as fans say ‘could he give less of a toss?’

FABINHO’S attitude for Saudi club Al-Ittihad has been mocked after the ex-Liverpool midfielder’s “disgraceful” role in a rival’s “cheeky trick”.

After the ambling Brazilian was nutmegged by Al-Okhdood’s Leandre Tawamba, one fan blasted: “I don’t think giving less of a toss is possible.”

Some viewers have questioned Fabinho’s efforts for Al-IttihadGetty

Al-Ittihad still triumphed 1-0 through Karim Benzema‘s goal on 72 minutes and top the Saudi Pro League with five wins from six games.

But Fabinho, 29, was trolled after league chiefs posted a clip of “the cheekiest of tricks” – but which, if you were generous, was more like a moment of meandering magic.

Cameroon striker Tawamba, 33, remained in first gear as he received the ball in a harmless position and nicked the ball through Fabinho’s legs.

One fan said of the painfully-slow exchange: “You can almost see him stood there calculating how much he earned in that moment.”

Another wrote: “Good to see Fab enjoying his retirement plan.”

A third claimed: “Looks like the last 10 minutes of 5 a side game and you’ve started thinking what your getting from the chippy on the way home.”

Fabinho joined the Saudi champs in July for £425,000 a week until 2026.

And with that sum enough to fund a luxury holiday every day of the year, many supporters reckon the ex-Anfield workhorse is already taking it easy.


One fan said of his mild mid-pitch meeting with Tawamba: “Everyone is moving around like they are just chilling”.

And many opinions were similar to this: “Sunday League is a higher standard than this. Not even joking.”
