Fabio Borini Hopes to Stay With Liverpool

By Kevin Koczwara

Fabio Borini is Brendan Rodgers’ first signing as Liverpool manager. He was a top-priority for Rodgers during the summer of 2012, after he was appointed, and the forward made it known he was determined to repay the manager’s faith by skipping the break he was allowed after taking part in the Euros that summer with Italy.

Things didn’t work out as planned for the former Chelsea youth player with Liverpool. Injuries hampered his first season and then he went out on loan last year. None of this has deterred the 23-year-old, though — not even the rumors that he could soon be leaving.

Report: Sunderland Still Want Borini

By Kevin Koczwara

Fabio Borini didn’t have much time to make an impact on Liverpool’s squad during his one full season with the club. For one reason or another (mostly injuries) the Italian forward didn’t get a chance to break in and make his mark. So, ahead of last season’s campaign, Brendan Rodgers decided to send the young forward out on loan to Sunderland.

Now the Black Cats are looking to try and lure the  forward back to Sunderland permanently after he helped them stave off relegation.

Brendan Rodgers watched his side scrape a deserved win over lowly Sunderland on Wednesday evening. The win was fully deserved but the reds made it difficult for themselves by inviting pressure late on. A stunning Steven Gerrard free-kick in the first half and a John Barnes-esque curler from Daniel Sturridge made it 2-0 early in the second half. Ki Sung pulled one back for Sunderland who threatened late on through Adam Johnson but John O’Shea failed to direct his header on target.  Continue reading
