Sunderland loanee hopes to stay fit
The Italian forward suffered three serious injuries that completely ruined his first 12 months on Merseyside.
And these three injuries to his foot and shoulder resulted in Borini needing three operations which meant his season never got off the ground.
Having barely played last season Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was eager to loan him out to get some first team experience and minutes under his belt leaving Borini eager to stay injury free to prove himself in the Premiere League.
Speaking to reporters Borini said, “My first thought is to have a clear season with nothing major happening.
“I’ve always proved myself in the short-term – Swansea was a three-month loan and then it was three months at Roma before injuries.
“I would like at least six or seven months without getting injured, which would mean all season.
“Last season was tough, mostly because of the injuries, not the move.
“Big-money moves happen in football. So do injuries, but they take you down, especially when all you want is to do well for a new team.
“Basically, your body pulls you out.
“I wanted to prove myself at Liverpool last season and I couldn’t really do it. I’ve come here to do that now.
“I always seem to have had injuries which are not the usual ones.
“Last season was basically the bone in your foot that you never use, but it’s very painful when you break it.
“You can’t really do much either because it’s in the middle of your foot. When you walk, it’s the only one that makes the other bones move.”
The addition of Daniel Sturridge, Iago Aspas, Philippe Coutinho and the emergence of youngster Raheem Sterling has made it harder for Borini to get a look in at Anfield this season.
But Brendan Rodgers clearly has faith in the Italian as he took him to previous club Swansea City on loan where he had a productive 6 goals in 9 games spell at the end of 2010-2011 season.
And the Reds manager then made him his first signing at Anfield in the summer of 2012 so if Borini can find his goal scoring form at Sunderland he could force his way back into Rodgers first team plans for next season.
