Soccer's Fabio Borini Has Foot Fracture


Liverpool striker Fabio Borini had to be substituted at half-time after sustaining a fractured foot during the Reds' recent 2-1 defeat to Manchester United and further aggravated the blow while on international duty with Italy with their Under 21's.
The team has confirmed that Borini will be out for three months after having surgery on his foot. His injury was originally diagnosed as a heavily swollen ankle, but further examination revealed the fracture. An official statement on Liverpool's website said: "Borini was assessed by the club's medical team upon his return to Melwood and a decision was made for the 21 year old to have surgery. Typically, an injury of this nature requires a three-month rehabilitation period."
Borini had been purchased from Roma over the summer transfer window for $10 million Euros, thinking he could provide some much needed depth and class in the Reds attack in the English Premier League and Europa League this summer. In five games however, Borini has yet to make a goal and has not been the attacking force Reds fans expected.
Now with the injury the Liverpool team has only one true striker, Uruguayan international Luis Suarez.
