  • Liverpool striker Borini hits back after QPR deal falls through on deadline day

    first_img Fabio Borini in action for Sunderland 1 Liverpool forward Fabio Borini has rubbished suggestions he has wildly unrealistic expectations after turning down two moves during the transfer window.The Italian rejected both Sunderland, with whom he had a successful loan spell last season, earlier in the summer before turning down QPR in the closing hours of the window on Monday.QPR manager Harry Redknapp told talkSPORT the west London side were unable to match the 23-year-old’s wage demands, with reports suggesting he wanted £90,000-a-week.That led to criticism of Borini, who will struggle to find a place on the bench at Anfield – never mind get close to the starting line-up – after manager Brendan Rodgers spent £40million on forwards Mario Balotelli, Lazar Markovic and Rickie Lambert.That sum does not include the £10million invested in Divock Origi, who was immediately loaned back to French club Lille.However, former Chelsea trainee Borini has hit back.“Finally the madness is finished!” he wrote on Twitter.“I protected the MAN and the player that I am today, taking all the responsibility of the situation and for people who didn’t want it.“And I’m VERY happy with myself to have taken such an important decision!”Borini was Rodgers’ first signing at Anfield in the summer of 2012, at a cost of £10.5million, having previously worked with him in Chelsea’s youth team and during a loan spell at Swansea.However, injuries have dogged his time on Merseyside and he scored just two goals in his maiden season before moving to Sunderland for the 2013-14 season, where he became something of a favourite on Wearside.He scored in both games against arch-rivals Newcastle, including a brilliant winner in the Stadium of Light encounter.The Black Cats had a £14million bid accepted by Liverpool in July but Borini rejected a move and, even with his options limited, he refused the escape route offered by QPR.last_img read more
