Fabio Borini is expected to line up for Swansea tomorrow in the play off final against Reading in what is considered as the richest game in the world as whoever wins is promoted into the Premier League. Borini found is chances at Chelsea limited to say the least and as we all know had to go out on loan to find himself regular first team football and we have to hold our hands up and say he has done well.

Ahead of the game Borini has taken aim at Chelsea and fired a parting shot at the club he is expected to leave this summer by saying:
“I have been wasting my career at Chelsea. I don’t need to remind Chelsea what I can do because they already know - I’ve been top scorer for the reserves - and sometimes you need to be honest with yourself. I need to go away from Chelsea to play regular football, even if it’s with a smaller team in a smaller league.

Most of the young players at Chelsea have had to do the same thing. Scott Sinclair, who plays at Swansea now, Jack Cork, Jeffrey Bruma, Patrick van Aanholt and Michael Mancienne all went through the same thing. I would not say we share the same frustration, but we all need the same honesty.

Although I am still young, I have been at Chelsea for four years now and I feel I have wasted the last six months of my career. When you are young, you are not patient about anything, so every game I play now is like an explosion.

All I am concentrating on is the Wembley final - after that, we will see what the future holds for me. If we win, I would be happy to play for Swansea in the Premier League if they want me to come back, and if we lose there is the same chance that I might go elsewhere. It’s like a Champions League final for us - except some of the boys have been telling me this game is worth more than the Champions League final because it’s the richest club match in the world.

I feel quite at home in Swansea - it is not like life in London, but it is a good life which allows me to concentrate on my football. And Brendan Rodgers [once Borini’s reserve-team boss at Chelsea] is a good manager and a great person who knows me very well. He is like an uncle because he helped me a lot when I was at Chelsea.

“It is not just at Chelsea where young players find their opportunities are limited - Manchester United, Inter Milan and even Barcelona don’t have that many young players in their first-team squads. Many of them have to go out on loan to play regular football.

It is still a privilege to train and work every day with world-class players, and the winning mentality you learn at a club like Chelsea will last your whole career.”

The problem is, and I have said it time and time again this season, our season looked like falling apart at one stage and when it happened, the likes of Borini, Bruma and the others were never going to get a realistic chance of playing again once everyone was fit as we had to put our strongest side out week in, week out.

Borini is right when it comes to finding opportunities limited and I guess next season will be the same again. It's become a fact of life now for any club in the Premier League chasing honours each season. The pressure of success and expectation are so great now, our youngsters will have to move on.

Let's wish Borini well tomorrow and for the future.
