Fabio Borini has underlined the significance of having four forwards in the Liverpool squad.

Reds manager Brendan Rodgers has Daniel Sturridge, Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert and Borini as his strikers.

Italy international Borini is the fourth choice for Rodgers at the moment, but he believes that having four forwards adds depth to the squad.

‘We have four completely different players so there is a good choice of players in the squad, because we can all do different things’, the 23-year-old told Liverpool’s official website.

‘We can all play together and we can all play on our own up front when it is a 4-3-3. It is a good selection of strikers and we can all learn from each other.

'I know there are some things that Rickie might do better than me, so I can learn from him. It's the same with Daniel and Mario. We all learn from each other if we have the right attitude.

‘We can all play together. I've played in lots of teams but that's something I've never seen before - such a different selection of strikers’.

Meanwhile, Liverpool’s first-team coach Mike Marsh has said that club captain Steven Gerrard is the perfect role model for any footballer.

‘It's not just the young players’, he told the club’s official website. ‘I think all of the players can learn from the way Steven applies himself when he goes into training sessions and prepares for the games. He's a great example to everyone.

#We've got four or five senior pros left over during the international break, so when the younger players come up, they see the way they prepare, how they do the warm-up, everything.

‘From the start of the session until the end, they do it really professionally and you can see them taking it all on board, so it's a really good experience for them’.

One Liverpool player who is away on international duty at the moment is Philippe Coutinho. The 22-year-old playmaker has been recalled to the Brazil national team and seems to be enjoying himself, as shown in the following selfie taken by former Chelsea and current Paris Saint-Germain star David Luiz.
