Borini: No Regrets Not Staying At Swansea City

Former loanee striker Fabio Borini says he has no regrets not staying at Swansea City to join Parma, after he helped the Swans win promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs.

The young Italian ignored a new contract offer at Chelsea but instead of making his loan move to the Swans permanent to play in the English top flight, he snubbed us for a move to his home country.

Borini said:

I thought for a couple of hours after [the play-offs at] Wembley that I had a great opportunity to stay in Swansea and play in the Premier League, which I would like to do,'

'Maybe it's a missed opportunity not playing in the Premier League, but maybe this is a good thing for my career and will make me stronger.

'I have no regrets. Parma is quite a big club with a big programme for the future.

'Maybe I will do well there and I can come back to the Premier League later in my career.'

'I really enjoyed my time at Swansea, the people there were really happy to have me and they helped me every day,'

'Even when I went shopping in Sainsbury's, people stopped me, encouraged me and asked me to stay. It was a great atmosphere.'


Borini scored 6 League goals for the Swans and also won a penalty in the play-off final that made the score 4-2 after Scott Sinclair converted the spot kick.

It was a shame to see Fabio leave us for another club, but Rodgers is quickly looking at replacements, and he could be close to signing Watford striker Danny Graham for £3.5m.
