It’s unlikely that Divock Origi will play for Liverpool again this season following Ramiro Funes Mori’s dirty tackle during the Merseyside Derby.
The Guardian report that the Belgian will spend four to six weeks on the sidelines, and with the season ending in less than a month, Origi has no virtually chance of featuring again.
The news is a huge blow to Liverpool, with Origi establishing himself as a hard-working, skilful, aerially excellent forward in recent months.
At 21, Origi has usurped Daniel Sturridge’s spot in our strongest XI, but now Jurgen Klopp will need to rely on the Englishman to stay fit for our crucial upcoming fixtures.
Sturridge is playing exceptionally as well, but Klopp will need to keep him at maximum fitness for our Europa League semi-final matches, which might mean resting him in the Premier League.
Funes Mori issued an apology to Origi, but it’ll be difficult for our youngster to accept. The tackle was malicious, and as well as missing the rest of this campaign, the forward will struggle to regain fitness before Euro 2016 as well.
