The Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said that he feels that the striker Fabio Borini will eventually come good for the club. The former Roma and Chelsea striker was signed for £ 11 million in the summer, but he has so far been a major disappointment due to the fact that he has largely been played out of position. Rogers has elected to use Luis Suarez as the lone striker at the club, while playing Borini in a wide position. The 21-year-old has also struggled with a lot of injuries since arriving at Liverpool, while he has recently spent the last three months on the injury table.

The fact that Liverpool recently brought in the Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge for £ 12 million means that the first-team opportunities are likely to be limited for Borini in the second half of the season. Despite this, the manager has reiterated his faith in the summer signing by saying that he expects Borini to add a lot of spark to the Liverpool season. Liverpool will be making the trip to Manchester United on Sunday looking to continue the good run of form, which has seen the team pick up four victories in the last five matches. As a result, they have risen up to the eighth position in the table.

“Other clubs have the depth to bring people off the bench and make an impact. We have been unable to do that in the opening months of the season, which gives incredible credit to the players who have kept us going until now. We have Daniel here now and will have Fabio fit soon and that will give us that spark. Hopefully over the years Fabio can develop into a top performer which I think he can be,” said Rodgers ahead of the visit to Manchester United.
