Brendan Rodgers confident Borini can make impact
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is confident that the returning Fabio Borini from injury can make an impact on his side and add a spark to their attack.
Borini is nearing a return to full fitness following three months out after surgery on a fractured foot, and Rodgers believes the Italian can add fresh impetus to the Liverpool attack along with new signing Daniel Sturridge, who scored on his debut in with FA Cup victory at Mansfield on Sunday.
Luis Suarez has been in scintillating form for the Reds this term, surpassing his league goals tally of 11 for the whole of last season, with 15 already this time around.
Rodgers is now excited about the prospect of having a full compliment of forwards to choose from and was quoted by the clubs official website as telling the Liverpool Echo:
“Other clubs have the depth to bring people off the bench and make an impact.”
“We have been unable to do that in the opening months of the season, which gives incredible credit to the players who have kept us going until now.”
“We have Daniel here now and will have Fabio fit soon and that will give us that spark.”
“Hopefully over the years Fabio can develop into a top performer which I think he can be.”
Borini is only 21-years-old so still a young prospect, and everyone associated with the club will hope he is able to fulfill the potential that Rodgers believes he has.
