Borini, 21, worked with Rodgers at the Chelsea academy and on loan at the Northern Irishman's former club Swansea City. As one striker arrives, does one depart? Rumours of the Geordie leaving L4, which surfaced after Silvio Berlusconi's son said the England international would be a good signing for AC Milan last week, fail to cease.
A coming of age season for a forward player who has scored six goals for a side who have practically lived in the relegation zone since August? If there is one moment that encapsulates this then it is standing atop the advertising boards at St. Footballers, especially the younger sort, are often said not to understand or appreciate the rivalries in English football.
Here Borini offered a full-blooded two-fingers to that outdated, almost offensive train of thought. The celebration that followed his penalty, the opening goal of a win, was at worst irresponsible, but at best a real indicator of the fiery passion that lies underneath his oft-perceived soft outer layer.
Evidence of this steely underbelly, this inner-resolve, was in scant evidence during his debut season on Merseyside. An injury-ravaged season it may have been, but that just added fuel to the belief that the Italian international was simply not up to the task.
Before his stunning winner in the Tyne-Wear derby in October there was an overwhelming sense that this would prove to be another wasted season for the young Italian. Sunderland were rooted to the bottom of the table and, as defeats to Fulham and Crystal Palace indicated, looked well short of being competitive in the Premier League.
In the first Tyne-Wear derby of the season, Borini trotted onto the pitch midway through the second half to little fanfare. Sunderland looked doomed; a Championship side-in-waiting.
With five minutes of the derby remaining, the Mackems looked sure to enter November still searching for an elusive league victory. But then the goal. And what a goal. A goal fit to win any game; that it graced a derby is all the sweeter.
To grant him a messianic status would be fallacious, for Sunderland won just one of their next eight league games immediately after that. The fans will not look to that as a barometer of his impact when he departs.
Sometimes it feels like polishing a turd when you argue the inarguable, but Fabio Borini has taken big strides at Sunderland. To even be a settled part of a side with a lot to fight for, a side who have enjoyed two profitable cup runs, is significant given the nature of his career thus far.
Having never spent longer than a year in one place during his professional career, it seems foolish to write him off without affording him at least a second season at Anfield.
He may only ever fulfil his potential if he is allowed to be that main player, he may be the type of player who cannot contribute sporadically if he is not playing regularly. Point to that celebration and tell me he lacks the hunger to prove himself at Anfield.Fabio Borini 's agent is demanding urgent talks with Liverpool to discuss the striker's future..
Borini's representative Marco De Marchi claims the Italian forward is frustrated at Anfield because. Borini later returned to Liverpool, and his form declined once again.
Appearing mostly as a substitute, Borini only managed to find the back of the net once during the season. His next move was a permanent one, and it was a return to the Stadium of Light.
