Liverpool boss Rodgers: Borini best athlete I've worked with
"I think the adaptation will be much easier," he told liverpoolfc.com. "I believe he'll feel as though he's coming home because his formative years as a young player were here in Britain and the game in this country suits him.
"He's technically strong, he's a good finisher with both feet, he can play central or on the sides in a 4-3-3 up front, he's quick, and he's tactically very good.
"He is arguably the best physical player I've worked with in terms of his pace, power and fitness. Mentally, he's very strong. We've got a player who is on the up and someone who I think Liverpool will benefit from."
