Fabio Borini has told the Liverpool Echo where he feels he could be playing better for Liverpool.
The Italian told the paper ain an exclusive that he doesn’t regret his decision to stay at the club and has been pleasantly surprised by the number of opportunities he’s had at Anfield so far this season.
“I’ve never regretted staying here. Yes, I could have left but I wanted to stay at Liverpool and I’m glad I did,” he told the Echo.
“To be honest, going back to last summer, I didn’t expect to play as much as I have done so far.”
“I probably should have scored a couple of goals from the few chances I’ve had but I’m quite happy with my season so far.”
Borini has started just two Premier League games this season and is yet to net his first strike in the league.
He seems content with a back-up role and appears to have accepted that he’s behind other players in the pecking order at Anfield.
The only way for him to change that, as he seems to have decided to stay, is scoring goals when he is given the chance and to make a difference coming off of the bench for the team.
Borini’s agent recently told the Liverpool Echo that the Italian would be staying put for the rest of the season, rather than seeking a move away and the player himself has confirmed just that.
“I won’t be leaving this month either. I started the last game and I don’t see any reason why I would need to change clubs. I see it as all positive for me.”
His presence in the Liverpool squad also has an impact on possible transfer plans, with Brendan Rodgers not needing to go out and sign another attacking player as a replacement this month.
He’s made it clear to the Echo that he wants to play for a top four club in the Champions League. It’s now over to Borini to give Liverpool no reason to try and move him on in the summer.
