Liverpool signing Fabio Borini admits he's kept in regular contact with manager Brendan Rodgers.

Rodgers had Borini at Swansea City and also worked with him at Chelsea.

Borini told "He was very important. I wouldn't say it was the key, but most of it came from him. Even during last season, I spoke with him a lot. I'd text him and ask if he was okay and congratulated him on the results he got with Swansea. First of all it is a relationship of friendship and afterwards it is a working one. That is more important than anything."
