Liverpool have made some incredible signings during the FSG era. The Reds recruitment team has become the envy of the world thanks to their knack for making shrewd purchases. It wasn’t always that way. One of our less successful signings has discussed his move; Fabio Borini has said he couldn’t turn down Liverpool.
Remember Fabio Borini?
Fabio Borini’s journey in English football began when he joined the Chelsea youth academy in 2007.
He played under Brendan Rodgers in the Chelsea academy before linking up with him again during a loan spell at Swansea.
Things didn’t work out at Stamford Bridge and the Italian went back to his homeland, joining Parma and then Roma.
Fabio Borini joined Liverpool from Roma in 2012, he went on to make 38 appearances for the Reds.
The striker eventually moved to Sunderland in 2015.
Fabio Borini on Liverpool move
Now playing in Turkey for Fatih Karagümrük, Fabio Borini has discussed his move to Liverpool.
Speaking in an interview with Tam Saha, the wide forward explained that he couldn’t possibly turn down the Reds:
“First of all I missed England. Apart from that, Liverpool are a very good club. It’s the best club in the world for me. In my opinion, the team with the highest number of fans in the world.
“You cannot easily say ‘no’ when such clubs come to you. They had a big shot for me and I accepted it.”
What RTK has to say
Borini wasn’t a huge success at Liverpool but he still seems to hold a deep respect for the club.
He had so much potential but unfortunately things just never worked out for him.
He threatened greatness on occasion but it just didn’t transpire for him.
Hopefully he enjoys winding down his career in Turkey, we wish him all the best.
