But there was plenty of confidence where the Brazilian was concerned over his chances of making a return in Paris with more than two weeks to recover from his hamstring injury.
And on Wednesday, as part of the club’s Champions League final media day, the No. 3 took part in the session with his Liverpool teammates in a huge boost for the Reds.
Fabinho completed the full session and told journalists afterwards: “I’ll be ready.”
There can be no understating the significance of his presence just days out from Paris, with the more training days in the bank the better after 15 days out of action.
Thiago, meanwhile, who avoided a serious Achilles issue against Wolves, was not present on the outside pitches at Kirkby as the race against the clock continues for his involvement at the Stade de France.
His injury was described as “not serious” but whether time is on his side remains to be seen, with Jurgen Klopp expected to offer an update in his press conference on Wednesday afternoon.
