While Liverpool are set to lose Luis Suarez for at least the remainder of the season, the news is rather better for the club when it comes to Fabio Borini, with the Italian returning to training for the first time today after two months on the sidelines with a dislocated shoulder.
Despite a frustrating first season at Anfield for the striker, one that has seen him on the sidelines more often than in the starting lineup, Borini remains hopeful for his future in England and was positively ebullient when sharing news of his first day back at practice.
After scoring in his first match at Anfield in the Europa League against FC Gomel, it's been more down than up for Borini at Liverpool, as he spent his first few months at his new club in and out of the starting eleven before suffering a broken foot against Manchester United in October.
Then, two months after returning to action—oddly enough against Manchester United in January—he dislocated his shoulder following a collision with Swansea defender Kyle Bartley. In total, the £10.5M striker has made 16 appearances for Liverpool in all competitions and scored once.
