The Reds forward insists he is happy at the club despite talk of a move away from Merseyside.
Liverpool striker Fabio Borini says he is happy to stay at Anfield despite a difficult first season at the club that has been plagued by injury and a lack of goals.
Borini has scored just one goal since Brendan Rodgers signed the forward in the summer of 2012 for £11.7million and has managed to start just 10 games for the club.
The Italy international’s introduction at Anfield didn’t start well as just two months into his Liverpool career the 22-year-old broke a bone in his foot and was on the sidelines until the New Year.
Then after just six more matches Borini dislocated his shoulder and his stuttering career on Merseyside continued to have problems.
Yet despite a number of setbacks the Italian insists he doesn’t want to move away from the club, despite several reports suggesting otherwise.
“It’s been a difficult season due to some unfortunate injuries, but these things happen and you can only accept them,” Borini was quoted on Sky Sports.
“In regards to my future, I’m not really thinking about next year, but I will stay at Liverpool because I have yet to prove that I can compete here.”
The striker is keen to show he can perform on the biggest stage, as he is hoping to get into Italy’s 23-man squad for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil after receiving his first cap in 2012 during a friendly against USA.
Although still only 22 Borini has already played for Chelsea, Swansea and Roma in his career.
