The Italy international has battled multiple setbacks since signing from Roma last summer, suffering a broken foot at the beginning of the campaign and a dislocated shoulder shortly after his return.

The 22-year-old has managed just nine Premier League appearances for Liverpool this season and has not hit the back of the net in the top flight.

Despite struggling to make his mark, Borini has denied speculation over a possible move, claiming he wants to prove his worth in the run up to the World Cup in Brazil next summer.

"It's been a difficult season due to some unfortunate injuries, but these things happen and you can only accept them," Borini told Rete Sport.

"This is not a totally wasted season, I hope to be helpful in these remaining four games and the 2014 World Cup is a big goal for me.

"In regards to my future, I'm not really thinking about next year, but I will stay at Liverpool because I have yet to prove that I can compete here."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
