Liverpool transfer news
The Belgian striker, who has spent his first season as a Liverpool player on loan at former club Lille, expects our ‘world-class’ manager Brendan Rodgers to inspire a return to our 2013-14 form next year, despite a dissapointing campaign this time around.
While we were slumping to a sixth place finish in the Premier League, Origi was enjoying a decent season in France, scoring nine goals in all competitions including a stunning hat-trick against Rennes.
And now, the 20-year-old who burst onto the scene at last summer’s World Cup, is ready to hit top-form at Anfield.
In quotes taken by Sky Sports, he said: “I think Liverpool is a wonderful club that deserves to be at the top and to be honest with the players they have, with the quality they have, then they should be finishing at the top of the league.
“I’m very happy to be going there. Brendan Rodgers is a very good coach and he has proved that, so it will be very exciting to work with a world-class coach.
“Most of all it is important to be at a good club where people believe in you and where you feel good and at Liverpool I had a really good feeling and they have experience of working with young players. It’s always nice to play with good players. The important thing is that I work hard and then I think everything will be okay.”
Despite his lack of experience at the top level, Liverpool fans will be hoping Origi can make a big impact next season. After struggling for goals for the last twelve months, some additional attacking firepower will be joyously welcomed on Merseyside… so let’s hope he can deliver!
