Criticised widely for deciding to reject Sunderland and QPR in the transfer window, Fabio Borini's determination to succeed at Liverpool is beginning to reap rewards.
The Italian came off the bench and helped the club with his presence in their Champions League win over Bulgarian side Ludogorets.
Though Borini neither scored nor registered an assist, his introduction allowed the Reds to play two up top - which no doubt proved crucial in his side's attempts to win the game late on.
After the game he sent a message on Twitter to teammates and fans:
Borini may be behind Daniel Sturridge and Mario Balotelli in the pecking order and little he does may change that, but as he showed last night, sticking around was to of benefit to the club.
With Sturridge out injured, Borini is likely to receive a few unexpected opportunities over the coming weeks, and his decisive role in the win at Anfield is a positive start in getting his Liverpool career back on track.
