Liverpool To Welcome Fabio Borini Back In The Summer

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted that he is pleased to see Fabio Borini doing so well at Sunderland this season and will bring him back to the club to assess his future in the summer, according to Sky Sports.

Borini joined the Reds for over £10m in 2012 from Serie A giants Roma, but injuries have restricted him to just over a dozen Premier League appearances.

He was subsequently shipped out on loan to Sunderland last summer where he has enjoyed a strong showing under Black Cats boss Gus Poyet, who has admitted that he would love to keep the young Italian, though he recently admitted that he does not believe it will be possible.

And Rodgers has hinted that the striker may still have a future at Anfield, and will take a closer look at him when the current campaign comes to an end.

“Fabio went out to get games, go on loan and play more regularly than he was playing here,” Rodgers explained.

“He has done that and showed with some of the goals he has scored – particularly against the big teams – the qualities that he has. The goal he scored in the Capital One Cup final was a fantastic goal.

“He has gone away to get experience of playing. Fabio will come back in the summer and he will be better for having played that season. And we’ll review it from there.”
