Liverpool striker Fabio Borini has been speaking about the benefits of the international break.
The Italian is fully aware that the Reds have not performed anywhere near their best this season but he sees the latest pause for international matters as the perfect chance for Brendan Rodgers’ side to refocus.
In an interview with Liverpool’s official website, Borini said, “The feeling here is that we have 10 days to work hard and focus on ourselves.
“We can work hard on what we need to do to improve and take that into the game against Crystal Palace and then Ludogorets.
“We lost three games in one week and when you lose three games you become tired of losing. Now it’s actually (going to be) easier to get up and fight because you want to win and you want to show that winning mentality is our mentality.”
Borini has made seven appearances for Liverpool so far this season but he is yet to find the back of the net.
However, having seen his side lose to Newcastle United, Real Madrid and Chelsea in recent times, it is clear he and his teammates want to get back to winning ways as soon as possible and are hoping to use this interval as the perfect platform from which to improve.
