Rodgers Backs Borini To Shine

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers believes that the club's fans will "love" new signing Fabio Borini.

The Reds and Roma have finalised a deal, which will see Borini put pen to paper on a long-term contract at Anfield, worth approximately £7.9 million.

"Fabio fits the model of what we're trying to do in building not only for now, but also for the future," Rodgers told Liverpool's website.

"He's a big talent, 21 years of age, he scores goals, and his passion, focus and concentration are very important parts of his game - and a big part of what you want from a player.

"I think the supporters will love him. He's a multi-functional player who can play in a number of positions and someone I believe has got great growth.

"I'd anticipate that over the next two or three years he'll really progress and I'm sure do very well for Liverpool.

"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."
