Liverpool striker Fabio Borini, currently on loan with Sunderland, remains hopeful he is able to forge a career on Merseyside after claiming he is ‘made’ to prove successful at a prominent club.
Borini joined Sunderland in the summer transfer window on a deal that will last for the entirety of the campaign, and scored his most notable goal for the club in the Capital One Cup final defeat to Manchester City last week.
Liverpool have a wealth of talent in attacking positions, with the likes of Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling among Brendan Rodgers Anfield number, but Borini believes his goal at Wembley is proof he is cut out for the top.
“That means I am made for a big team,” Borini said, as reported by The Mirror.
"We will see what will happen until the end of the season, and try to beat the big teams and the small ones, and then let’s see in the summer.”
Borini was a £10.5 million acquisition by Liverpool from Roma in the summer transfer window of 2012, but an injury sustained early into the season saw his progress with the club halted.
The 22-year-old made his comeback from a broken foot in January of last year but, by that point, Liverpool had already signed Sturridge from Chelsea, providing even greater difficulty for Borini to get back into the team.
In total, the Italian made 20 appearances during his first season with Liverpool, scoring only two goals to the 11 Sturridge managed in his first six months at the club.
