Former Liverpool forward Fabio Borini has said that he is desperate to score against the club on Wednesday evening.
Borini moved to Sunderland on a permanent deal in the Summer after spending three years as a Red.
He was signed from AS Roma by former manager Brendan Rodgers in the Summer of 2012 and had a disappointing first season at Anfield.
Rodgers decided that a loan move away from Liverpool for the 2013/14 season was the best idea for the Italian and he joined Sunderland on loan.
The Makems tried to sign Borini in the Summer of 2014, but he refused to leave Anfield despite the offer being accepted – and a warning that he would be a peripheral figure.
After another poor season with the Reds, in which he managed just one goal, he finally decided to give up on the dream of becoming a regular in the side and agreed to move permanently to Sunderland.
And now he wants to exact some revenge on the club by netting for Sunderland in the Premier League game on Wednesday evening at the Stadium of Light.
“Yes, I’d like to score against Liverpool. More than anyone else.” he told the Sunderland Echo.
“I’ve said everything I want to already about my time there.” he added.
Despite the comment that he’s said all he needs to about his Liverpool career, the bitterness and animosity he feels towards the club is hard to fathom.
He reportedly did not get on with Rodgers towards the end after not being given what he considered a fair chance to prove himself, but he was always treated well by fans.
