Liverpool’s Borini likely out for season

Updated: February 18, 2013

Liverpool forward Fabio Borini is likely
out for the remainder of the season after he sustained a suspected dislocated
shoulder in Liverpool’s 5-0 win over Swansea City on Sunday.

The 21-year-old entered the match as a second-half substitute but fell
awkwardly and immediately headed to the dressing room.

“It’s unfortunate. It’s actually the other shoulder to a similar injury he had
when he was at Chelsea,” Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said. “It looks
like in the early stages that (a dislocated shoulder) is the diagnosis.”

The injury is just the latest setback for the Italian in what has been a
frustrating season.

He arrived at Anfield over the summer from Roma, but has been limited to only
eight Premier League appearances after missing three months because of a
broken foot.
