Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has admitted his delight at Fabio Borini’s imminent return from a lengthy injury lay-off this month.

The Italian striker has been out of action since November after suffering a fractured foot while on international duty following his £10.5m move from AS Roma last summer.

Borini is set to return to full training this week and Rodgers is looking forward to having three strikers to chose from, with Luis Suárez and new-boy Daniel Sturridge available.

“Other clubs have the depth to bring people off the bench and make an impact,” said Rodgers.

“We have been unable to do that in the opening months of the season, which gives incredible credit to the players who have kept us going until now.

“We have Daniel here now and will have Fabio fit soon and that will give us that spark. Hopefully over the years Fabio can develop into a top performer which I think he can be.”
