Borini excited about Rodgers reunion at Liverpool

Former AS Roma striker Fabio Borini admits his move to Liverpool is down to Brendan Rodgers.

Borini worked with Rodgers at both Chelsea and Swansea City.

"First of all he is a good person outside of football, and it's important to work with good people," he told "As a manager he is great. He knows what he is going to do every single day, he is very organised.

"You can see at the training ground, he gets there early and he really wants to work and improve every day.

"I think he is the kind of manager players love to play for. I love to play for him.

"We are very close. When he was working at Swansea, he'd text after I scored twice, and I'd text when he achieved good results with Swansea, when he beat the big teams.

"It's a good relationship as a friend, as human beings, and then as a working relationship."
