Borini vows to find scoring touch for Liverpool
Liverpool striker Fabio Borini is ready to repay the faith shown in him by his manager Brendan Rodgers and the Reds supporters by regularly finding the net. The Italian has struggled to make an impact at Anfield following his £13m summer move from Roma and has so far only scored one goal for the club in a Europa League qualifier.
However, according to the Daily Mirror, Borini, who worked with Rodgers during the Northern Irishman’s time at Swansea City, says he is now ready to answer Liverpool’s striking problems.
“I know I have been bought to score goals but I don’t feel the pressure. I know it will come,” said the 21-year-old. “It’s just a matter of time for me. The same thing happened last season - I scored one goal for Roma before October, then got injured for three months. After that, I scored my second goal in January and from then until March I got 10. I’m always late, but they do come, I don’t need to rush my performances. I’m working hard every day in training and the goals will come.”
Borini’s last appearance came in the defeat against Manchester United at Anfield where he was substituted at half-time due to injury. Since then, the Reds have won two matches on the bounce with their first Premier League victory of the season coming courtesy of a Luis Suarez hat-trick at Norwich to seal an impressive 5-2 victory. The Italian international looks set to feature against native club Udinese in Liverpool’s Europa League clash on Thursday night.
