The 21-year-old arrived at Anfield from Roma for £7.9 million this week and Rodgers was delighted to acquire a player who he hopes will be a Liverpool FC player for many years to come on Merseyside.
“Fabio fits the model of what we’re trying to do in building not only for now, but also for the future,” he told Liverpool’s website.
“He’s a big talent, 21 years of age, he scores goals, and his passion, focus and concentration is a very important part of his game – and a big part of what you want from a player.
“I think the supporters will love him. He’s a multi-functional player who can play in a number of positions and someone I believe has got great growth.
“I’d anticipate that over the next two or three years he’ll really progress and I’m sure do very well for Liverpool.
“He is arguably the best physical player I’ve worked with in terms of his pace, power and fitness.
“Mentally, he’s very strong. We’ve got a player who is on the up and someone who I think Liverpool will benefit from.”
Borini was also delighted to be reunited with Rodgers, having worked with the northern Irishman at Chelsea and Swansea City.
“I hope to achieve the maximum I can, by scoring goals, getting into the Champions League and all of the things the club also wants – and all the other players,” he said.
“It’s a top club that has won a lot of trophies in the past – and will do so in the future we hope as well.”
