Borini: 'Competition motivates me'

Fabio Borini insists “competition just motivates me to do better” and the new Milan striker is already planning a goal against Inter.

The former Sunderland forward was one of 10 arrivals this summer and more are believed to be on the way.

“I have always worked hard and often started a season being considered the spare wheel, but then I always ended up playing,” Borini told Mediaset Premium.

“Competition just motivates me to do better. I’d love to score against Inter and it’s more than do-able. I’ve already netted past them for Roma.”

Milan need another striker and Borini was asked about interest in Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

“He is a great champion, who wouldn’t want to play with someone like him? In my career, I have already played alongside many champions.”

The Rossoneri won their two competitive games so far this season, beating Craiova in the Europa League preliminary round.

“It was a great feeling to debut at San Siro. Seeing it full after such a long time means a lot for us. Despite the fact it was early August, there were so many fans and that was important.”
