(Reuters) - Fabinho has had a quiet start to his Liverpool career but manager Juergen Klopp has no concerns about his worth to the side and expects to him to play against Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League later on Wednesday.

While Klopp did not reveal whether the 25-year-old midfielder would be in the first 11 or on the bench his chances of making just his second start since arriving from AS Monaco have been boosted injuries to Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita.

“You come to a new club and it depends a bit on your personality. He’s not the loudest person on the planet,” Klopp told reporters.

“It’s not that he’s come in and said; ‘Sit down all of you and I’ll explain how we do it because Monaco were in the Champions League semi-final the year before and became French champions.’

“I didn’t make the starting lineup yet but he has been here a few months now, got used to a few things, and so we will use him.”
