Sunderland boss Poyet full of praise for Liverpool striker Borini

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet would love to keep hold of on-loan Liverpool striker Fabio Borini.

The Uruguayan would dearly love to re-sign the Italian striker in the summer, but is realistic about where the forward's future may lie.

He said: "He's got everything that you need as a professional football player. It's a pleasure to have him. I mean, I would recommend him to anyone in the world because he's a top, top professional.

"You can like him, more or less, as a player. He can play up front, wide. They are decisions that we make. But as a professional, he's an absolute pleasure to have."
