Italian forward Fabio Borini still has his sights set on becoming a success at Anfield after scoring the winner for loan club Sunderland against fierce rivals Newcastle United on Sunday.
The former Chelsea striker found himself surplus to requirements for Liverpool this season after the signing of Spaniard Iago Aspas, return of Luis Suarez from suspension and form of Daniel Sturridge since he joined from Chelsea in January.
Borini joined the club in the Summer of 2012 for a fee in the region of £10m from Italian giants Roma. He had previously played under Rodgers at for Chelsea’s youth side and at Swansea City too. He also had a spell back home with Parma. But he sees his future back at Anfield and doesn’t want to keep changing location.
“There has been a squad revolution there but the worst thing for me was getting injured when I was actually playing at the start of last season,” he said.
“I remain a Liverpool player, I’m on loan because there wasn’t space for me and after a year of injuries I needed to get my confidence back, to play some games. But my roots are still there.”
