Liverpool forward Fabio Borini believes he has become a better player from watching some of the game's greats at close quarters.

During two years at Chelsea he trained alongside the likes of Didier Drogba and John Terry, then learned from Francesco Totti and Daniele de Rossi at Roma before moving to Liverpool where he has Luis Suarez and Steven Gerrard.

It meant when he arrived on Merseyside in a £10million move in the summer he was not over-awed by the Reds' two star players, and he told Press Association Sport: "The first couple of sessions you watch the likes of Luis Suarez and Steven Gerrard because you want to learn. But I've also trained with JT (John Terry), Didier Drogba, Totti, De Rossi."
