Monaco defender Fabinho has chosen to speak out to Nice-Matin on his disappointment during the summer of not being freed to join league rivals Paris Saint-Germain. He said he had considered “going into dispute” with the club, but thought better of it.

“I couldn’t get what the club had promised me out of my head. I was convinced I was right, and yes, I thought about going into dispute with them,” he told local French daily Nice Matin.

“But I talked it over with my friends, my family, my agent, and it wasn’t an easy decision. The image I would have given off wouldn’t have been one that corresponded to me.”

The 24-year-old Brazilian added, “Even though I only had that as a solution, I preferred not to enter into a fight with the club.”

He admitted that at the start of this season he hadn’t given the game his all. “My mind was elsewhere. Sometimes, unwittingly, I didn’t manage to give my all. It wasn’t to give a bad impression of myself, I couldn’t do anything. I was frustrated at the end of the transfer window, but I’ve turned the page.”
