Borini Has 'Knife Between His Teeth'

Borini Has 'Knife Between His Teeth'

New Swansea City loan signing Fabio Borini explained his debut celebration in the 3-2 win against Nottingham Forest, saying he has the 'knife between his teeth'.

The 20 year-old striker explained that it is a saying in his native Italy, which means that when you want to achieve something so badly, you're 'angry to reach your goals'.

Borini scored twice on his debut and whilst celebrating one of the goals, he put the side of his hand in his mouth to demonstrate his delight at finding the net in his first game.

'I've been planning that celebration for a long time,''

'In Italy it means you've got the knife between your teeth.

'When you want to achieve something so badly that you are angry to reach your goals, you put the knife between your teeth.

'That's what I was trying to show by putting the side of my hand in my mouth.''

'It was important to break down all the barriers mentally with a goal in the first game rather than it dragging into the second or third game,''

'I scored against Forest and that's the barriers gone. Now I can play freely and look to score as many goals as I can.

'It's going to be tough physically and mentally to play seven games in the next four weeks, but we all need to keep our concentration and pick up as many points as possible.''


Borini is out of contract this Summer as he has yet to receive a new contract offer at Chelsea, and Swansea City look to have first opportunity to sign him. Due to his age, compensation would need to be paid.

Borini also said that he likes English football and could be tempted to stay:

'I did not know he (Preiti) was there, but I do know there's interest in Parma for me.

But even then, they are not the only team and if I start thinking about how many are following me it will end up detracting from my real goal.

'And that's to score five more goals by the end of the season with Swansea. I want to play and grow and I have finally found a place where I can. And I know I earn a great future as well if I continue like this.

'We'll see what happens but I really like the English atmosphere and English football - I think that's my football.'
