Fabio Borini: Staying at Liverpool was one of my goals


Liverpool striker Fabio Borini says he is happy to be at a club that tries to win every competition.

The Italian was heavily linked with a move away from the club during the summer transfer window but decided to stay at Anfield and is ready to fight for a regular place.

"The transfer market was like a storm. Now it has passed, I don't have problems anymore," Borini told

"I'm included in the Champions League's list too, we are practicing well. In the summer, there was a lot of talk.

"There weren't big misunderstandings, my wish is to play in a top club and Liverpool is a top club.

"There have never been real problems, I know what my goals are and how I can reach them. Staying at Liverpool was one of them.

"I'm in a great team that tries to win every competition and that's what I want."

According to reports, the 23-year-old was monitored by Sunderland, Queens Park Rangers but also Internazionale in Italy before making the decision to stay with the Reds.

"If I stayed here, it's because I thought I can play. It's not out of thirst of greatness or to keep my spot here. I'm not like that.

"If I stayed at Liverpool it's because I think I could compete.

"Of course, there are excellent players here, but you can't win all the competitions with weak ones.

"I want to turn the great competition into an advantage and improve day after day."
