Borini turned down moves to Loftus Road and the Stadium of Light but will be well aware of the mountain that awaits him at Liverpool.
The likes of Daniel Sturridge, Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli sit in front of Borini in the queue for a central striking role, with a wide role seemingly even harder to crack, but the Italian seems confident of his ability to make the grade, stating;
“The transfer market was like a storm,” Borini said in an interview with gianlucadimarzio.com.
“Now it has passed, I don’t have problems anymore. I’m included in the Champions League’s list and we are training well. In the summer, there was a lot of talk, but there weren’t big misunderstandings.
“My wish is to play in a top club and Liverpool are a top club. There have never been real problems, I know what my goals are and how I can reach them. Staying at Liverpool was one of them. I’m in a great team that tries to win every competition and that’s what I want.
“If I stayed here, it’s because I thought I can play. It’s not out of thirst of greatness or to keep my spot here. I’m not like that. If I stayed at Liverpool it’s because I think I could compete.
“Of course, there are excellent players here, but you can’t win all the competitions with weak ones. I want to turn the great competition into an advantage and improve day after day.”
Borini netted twice in 20 appearances in his first season at Liverpool but enjoyed a better fist of it during his season long loan spell at Sunderland last term, scoring ten times in all competitions and helping Gus Poyet’s side pull off a great escape from relegation to the Championship.
