Exclusive: Fabinho to star in Netflix’s Tiger King 4 doc

Ain't you ever seen a Brazilian international midfielder walkin' a tiger on a lead before?


Former Liverpool midfielder Fabinho is set to star in the fourth season of Netflix’s American true crime series Tiger King.

Tiger King 4 will focus on Fabinho’s new life in Saudi Arabia as the owner of a big cat zoo as well as his bitter feud with animal rights activist Carole Baskin and her husband Howard.

When he’s not shoveling tiger sh*t or plotting to kill Carole, the 29-year-old will play some football matches for Saudi Pro League outfit Al-Ittihad.

Promotional shots showing Fabinho holding a chained tiger were released this morning as the season four premiere draws near.

‘Hey there, I’m Fabinho, and welcome y’all to my tiger zoo’, the Brazilian told Paddy Power News.

‘They’re just big ol’ pussy cats. Go ahead, pet one’, he said, just as a Paddy Power News reporter is dragged away and brutally mauled by several ravenous tigers.

‘I may never financially recover from this’, said Fabinho before checking his Al-Ittihad pay slip and realizing he was sweet.

The former Monaco star revealed how Big Cat Rescue owner Carole Baskin has been trying to close his exotic animal zoo.

‘The woman’s obsessed with me’, said Fabinho.

‘She says my tigers are being exploited for financial gain’.

‘But I tried to tell her. Animal rights. Human rights. They don’t matter much to me’, he grinned, while fanning himself in the heat with a wad of crisp banknotes.

News of Fabinho’s arrival at Al-Ittihad will come as a blow to original Tiger King star Joe Exotic who was the subject of a £60m bid by the club last year.

Exotic’s Saudi move fell through when Donald Trump declined to give the Fort Worth prison inmate a presidential pardon on his final day in office.

Upon hearing of Trump’s snub, Exotic remarked: ‘That bitch’.
