Fabio Borini has declared that his Liverpool career “starts now” after the Italian forward made his return from injury in a 2-1 loss to Manchester United on Sunday.

It was Borini’s first Reds appearance since fracturing a bone in his foot while on international duty with Italy’s Under-21 side back in October.

The 21-year-old has scored once in 11 appearances after completing a £15m switch from Roma to the Anfield outfit in the summer.

With Luis Suárez scoring on a regular basis and new signing Daniel Sturridge already netting twice, Borini faces increased competition for a starting spot – but he is relishing the challenge of breaking back into the first-team.

“It was extremely frustrating because in the last three years I have got injured for three months every year in October,” Borini told Liverpool’s website.

“That was the most frustrating thing because at the same time for the last three years, I’ve got an injury.

“I haven’t played a full season yet because of those injuries, but I hope they’ll stop [now]. It’s just been bad luck and nothing about me. They’ve been different injuries each time and not the same.”

He added: “My Liverpool career is actually starting now, I think. I’d only played five league games and six or seven games in the Europa League [before the injury], which is not a lot.

“It really starts now with great intensity week in, week out to get playing again.”
