Not once since arriving at Liverpool has Divock Origi given Reds reason to believe he is approaching life at the club in the wrong way.
The mindset he works with and the manner in which he speaks about his situation makes it increasingly difficult to believe he is only 21-years-old and still yet to play his best football.
He has been frustrated by a lack of playing time this season, which is what fans want and what seemingly drives him to continue working hard. A player that is desperate to play at this club instantly has a chance of being successful. It just so happens that the Belgian has the talent to aid his ambition.
Roberto Firmino has been favoured as the team’s central attacking figure for much of the season but injuries to Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana mean that Origi could be given his chance to shine once again.
“You have to put everything in and show it on the pitch. I always respect the decisions of the coach. The most important thing is to stay cool in the head and enjoy the game every time, play a part and help the team,” he told the Liverpool Echo.
“We have a very good group. I think the main thing for me is that I can be a big option for now and then it is up to the manager to choose.”
“I’m very ambitious and my goal is to be a leader in this team. I think it is very possible. I won’t rest until I reach my goals and when I reach my goals I will set other goals.”
“I feel very ready, I’m very good, I’m very fit. I feel even better than last year. For me, it’s about giving everything for every minute that I get. Then at the end of the season we will see.”
Origi has uncovered an individual tendency to cut in from the left hand side, which is something Klopp could exploit over the next few weeks. The loss of vital players means Liverpool will need him at his best during the team’s final push for a top four spot.
