Some fuckwits here are blaming the manager for the fraud still being on the books!!
how can you not blame him?!
It just shows that Rodgers had no clue about the club when he came here. The owners knew even less, so they just assumed that the people they hired would make the best decisions.
The issue is that Borini was NEVER going to be a Liverpool quality player. When a manager moves up to a bigger club, his targets have to change. Top players for top clubs. You don't bring the same f**king player you brought to Swansea, when they were in the Championship, to Liverpool, a team trying to win the league.
But Rodgers didn't care. He wanted to bring his small club mentality to Liverpool. Don't forget that that summer we also tried to sign Ashley Williams, Sigurdsson, Vorm etc. He literally tried to turn us into a small club by importing small club players.
So is it any surprise, what Borini is doing? of course not. The same thing happened with Downing. They knew they had hit the jackpot, some numpties thought they were good enough to play for our club, gave them ridiculous wages. of course they're going to take advantage of it! "Oh, you only NOW realized I'm not good enough? oh ok, sure, I'll go away quietly and take a paycut, no problem." yea right. They're getting paid above their station and they know it. You want rid of them you have to give them the money they are rightfully owned, as per the idiotic contracts that were put in front of them.
So don't blame Borini. Blame Rodgers, FSG and the other buffoons who were too thick to see that they were sh*te and were never going to be worthy of our great club.
