Fabinho needs no introduction, the tireless midfielder who has made 216 appearances for the club from the Principality... but you may be less familiar with Rebeca, his wife, who also happens to be the new number 10 for AS Monaco women.
Rebeca: "As his wife, I always support him. When he's down I try to cheer him up and put a smile back on his face. But he's very mature, he keeps things separate (home life and work). I think I help him with his football, on and off the pitch. I think I play a role and help him in his career!"
AS Monaco media spent last week with the couple. After the away match in Toulouse (3-3), Rebeca and Fabinho headed for Saint-André de la Roche, where Rebeca played on the synthetic pitch under the watchful eye of Fabi. The talented Brazilian marked her debut with a goal and an assist. On Friday, the roles were reversed as Rebeca was in the stands for the Red & Whites' twelfth victory at the Louis-II... "The most important thing is the win, the team getting three points, with Fabinho having a good game too, even if he didn't score!"
