Leipzig sporting director Rouven Schroder said on the team's website that “both parties had expected more from his time here — especially Fabio in terms of his playing time.”

“Due to the quality and competition within our squad at his position, we are unable to guarantee this for him," Schroder said. “We held several discussions over the last days and in the end, decided to end his loan early.”
