Borini Quiet On Where His Future Lies

Borini Quiet On Where His Future Lies

On Loan Chelsea striker Fabio Borini is refusing to talk about where his future lies just yet as he concentrates fully on Monday's Play-off Final at Wembley.

The young Italian has scored 6 goals since joining the club in March and after such an impressive spell at the Liberty Stadium, manager Brendan Rodgers is obviously interested in making the move permanent.

Whether or not we sign him, as he will leave Chelsea for free in June, could come down to where we are playing our football next season, as we look to win a place in the Premier League. Not only that, but Parma sound confident that they will sign the 20 year-old.

Borini spoke about what it feels like to be playing at Wembley, 2 days after the Champions League final is staged there:

"Just two days earlier they will play the Champions League final there, which is the most important game in Europe.

"For us this is our Champions League final. It is great.

"I went to Wembley to watch Chelsea and saw Burnley beat Sheffield United there.

"Every time I watched a game at Wembley, my eyes were nearly crying. There is such a great atmosphere.

"It will be amazing to play there."

Borini said all he's thinking about is Monday's game, not his future:

"My future now is all about Wembley. All the rest will come afterwards.

"I won`t think about anything else now apart from the game.

"I`ve played international games but never finals, this is my first one since I have been in England.

"I have played U19 European Championships and in the Champions League with Chelsea but they will be nothing compared to a Wembley final.

"I feel 100% part of the team and part of the group.

"If we win I will be very happy to be part of this group because we made history.

"It`s been a great season and to finish with a Wembley final is the best I can get."

"I`m feeling really good, and confident, that`s the most important thing,"

"We absolutely 100% believe we can win the game and go up.

"We are a good team. The way we play football, we keep it on the ground and don`t want to just kick it long, it`s a different way from everyone else in the Championship.

"I knew I wanted to have this kind of experience when I came to Swansea. I said I would score five goals and I got six.

"It`s better than a dream because a dream sometimes doesn`t come true."
