Some of Rodgers quotes about Borini, heaping a lot of praise on him here:-
I was very keen to bring him here. Fabio fits the model of what we’re trying to do in building not only for now, but also for the future.
Talking about the talent he believes Fabio has…
He’s a big talent, 21 years of age, he scores goals, and his passion, focus and concentration is a very important part of his game – and a big part of what you want from a player
I think the supporters will love him. As I said, he’s a goalscorer, but he’s a multifunctional player who can play in a number of positions – and someone I believe has got great growth.
He’s one of the few young players in the full Italian squad. I’d anticipate that over the next two or three years he’ll really progress and I’m sure do very well for Liverpool.
Brendan went on to discuss Fabio the player..
He’s technically strong, he’s a good finisher with both feet, he can play central or on the sides in a 4-3-3 up front, he’s quick, and he’s tactically very good.
He is arguably the best physical player I’ve worked with in terms of his pace, power and fitness. Mentally, he’s very strong. We’ve got a player who is on the up and someone who I think Liverpool will benefit from.
Welcome Fabio, hope you have a great career here!
