Fabinho’s dogs preventing his move to Saudi Arabia

July 24, 2023

It seems like Liverpool and Brazilian midfielder Fabinho’s move to the Saudi Pro League hangs in balance because of his dogs. The player possesses 2 French bulldogs.

The Brazilian has already agreed a move to Saudi club Al Ittihad. The club is poised to pay £40m to Liverpool for the former Monaco player.

However, reports have it that his dogs which are deemed very dangerous in Saudi Arabia might jeopardize the deal. And the Brazilian seems not ready to leave them behind.

It should be noted that despite enticing many football superstars to the country with huge money, Saudi Arabia has very strict laws.

In fact they had to bend one for Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo and his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez. Apparently none married couples are not allowed in the country but an exception was made for the former Real Madrid striker.

On top of that, it’s rumored that some players are thinking of the possibility of staying in nearby Bahrain which isn’t so far from Riyadh. The rules there are said to be a little bit lenient.
