Borini's representative, Marco De Marchi, thinks the Italy forward would have been better off under ex-boss Zdenek Zeman at Roma, rather than at Anfield.
The Liverpool striker is currently on loan at Sunderland after an injury ravaged first season at Anfield following his £10m switch from Rome.
The 22-year-old struggled initially at Liverpool before suffering a string of injuries that ruled him out for much of the campaign.
The Italian international had three surgical operations on foot and shoulder problems last season, but he hopes to stay fit under Paolo Di Canio this term.
But De Marchi believes he would have enjoyed a more productive time had he stayed in Serie A.
"I think Fabio would have been perfect for the game of Zdenek Zeman, who was then the coach of Roma, but the decision to leave the capital came from both sides," De Marchi told Radio Mana Mana as reported by talkSPORT.
"Everything was concluded very quickly, without a chance for us to talk to the coach. Having said that I still believe Roma was the best possible for Fabio."
Borini made just five starts for Liverpool last season, having played under Reds boss Brendan Rodgers at Swansea. He is yet to play for Sunderland.
