Because of his ability to win the air balls and efficiently run the defense, he has been nicknamed "The Hoover" as well as "Dyson", both of which are brands of vacuum cleaners. Fabinho cleans everything up on the soccer pitch.

Fabinho started his career in Fluminese and made a name for himself playing in Monaco for five years starting in 2013. His glory days came once he signed with Liverpool in 2018, where he has so far won one Champions League and one Premier League trophy, playing under manager Jurgen Klopp. Fabinho is instrumental in the way Liverpool play and for his ability to read the game and see everything on the pitch so well, he has also been nicknamed "The Lighthouse".
