Fabio Borini

When Borini signed a contract to join Liverpool in the middle of July 2012, the Reds became the third English club he had been on the books of even at the early age of 21. He was, however, a footballer already well known by the manager who signed him for Liverpool because Brendan Rodgers had been Swansea’s manager when the Italian was loaned to the Welsh club by Chelsea for the closing weeks of the 2010/11 season.

Kop Quote

Alan Hansen on Finnan in 2005-2006

"Steve has shown a massive improvement over the last eighteen months or so. I can't think of a better right back in the Premiership at the moment. The way he's been playing all season has been outstanding but he's a relatively unsung hero. You only have to look at his performances on a weekly basis to see how good he is now. I always thought Finnan was good on the ball but he's dramatically improved defensively since he's been at Liverpool.

"That defensive improvement also brings the best out of him when he's on the ball because of the confidence factor. If you go back to the start of last season when Carragher was switched to centre half, it looked like right back could be a problem position. Not any more it doesn't. Finnan has got to take all the plaudits for that because sometimes, when people aren't sure about you, it can transmit to a player and they sink. The opposite has happened to Finnan. He's grown in confidence and is now playing better and better and better."
