Unwanted Liverpool star happy he stayed

Fabio Borini has revealed that he’s thrilled with his decision to reject moves to both Sunderland and QPR in order to stay at Liverpool.

The Italian striker has been linked with a switch away from Anfield for much to the summer, after spending last season on loan at the Stadium of Light.

Sunderland wanted to make the deal a permanent one, but despite a £14m offer having been accepted, the 23-year-old turned down Gus Poyet.

In a late twist yesterday Borini then came close to signing for QPR, but his wage demands put the Londoners off.

As a result the striker will remain on Merseyside, and he took to Twitter to reveal his happiness with the decision:

“Finally the madness is finished!” he posted on his official Twitter account.

“I protected the MAN and the player that I am today taking all the responsibility of the situation and for people who didn’t want it.

“And I’m VERY happy with myself to have taken such an important decision!”

Borini’s first-team opportunities at Liverpool are likely to be limited, with Mario Balotelli, Daniel Sturridge and Rickie Lambert all ahead of him in Brendan Rodgers’ pecking order.
