Sunderland’s on-loan striker Fabio Borini has ruled out a permanent move to the club and hopes to force his way into the Liverpool starting line-up in the future.
Since he arrived at the Stadium of Light in September, the Italian has been a regular in Gus Poyet’s team and has found the back of the net on three occasions for the black Cats.
The 22 year old however does not want to remain on Wearside beyond the end of his current agreement and wants to go back to Merseyside.
"It would be nice to go back there (Liverpool) as a Premier League player and to have shown them that even in a hard situation I can do well," he said.
”I’ve achieved one of my objectives here at Sunderland of playing every week, but to play for big teams like Liverpool, you don’t just need to perform well.”
"As a striker you need to score goals. You can perform well, but at the end of the season people count your goals.”
"I needed to prove to myself first that I can play here because I’ve never had a long spell playing in England but now I’m getting a long run of games."
Borini has however insisted that his immediate goal is to ensure Premier League survival for Sunderland and avoid relegation.
"The main aim is to stay up, we can’t think about going down. With my confidence on the rise, hopefully I can help us in that aim," he added.
