The Belgian thanked the fans on Twitter after a poor game at Anfield.
Liverpool’s poor start to the season continued last night with a poor performance against Carlisle United.
They could not hit the back of the net against the League Two side, despite plenty of opportunities. Danny Ings was the only one who could find the back of the net and in the end they had to go to penalties to get past the fourth tier side.
Plenty of Liverpool players disappointed, including Belgian Divock Origi.
Origi impressed last summer at the World Cup. The powerful striker was superb for Belgium and his performances were always going to attract attention.
He has now joined up with Liverpool permanently but has struggled to make his mark. Yesterday he came on for Roberto Firmino after 35 minutes but did not have a significant impact on the game.
Today he has been Tweeting about the game, trying to placate fans by putting the result – qualification – into perspective:
Thanks to the fans for the support last night. Was a tough game but the win is all that matters in the end! #YNWA— Divock Origi #27 (@DivockOrigi) September 24, 2015
Origi clearly knows that keeping the Liverpool fans on board is paramount to his and his team’s success going forward during what appears to be a very tough time under Brendan Rodgers.
