Liverpool's Divock Origi explains what Klopp told the side and comments on his own form

Welcome To Anfield

The Liverpool forward is yet to break his duck since arriving at Anfield.

Liverpool striker Divock Origi has been speaking to the club’s official website about what his new manager Jurgen Klopp told the Reds ahead of their clash with Tottenham Hotspur this weekend.

The two sides played out a 0-0 draw in the first Premier League match since the international break and Origi was unable to make the breakthrough having started in Klopp’s first match since replacing Brendan Rodgers at the helm.

With Christian Benteke, Roberto Firmino, Danny Ings and Daniel Sturridge all unavailable for Liverpool, Origi was tasked with leading the line in what was his first ever Premier League start.

Speaking to liverpoolfc.com after the game, the Belgian international explained what message Klopp had sent his players out with, along with his own hopes for the future.

“(Klopp told us) just to play with passion and no fear,” the 20-year-old said. “He believes in everybody, the young players, the old players, we’re all here because we have quality.”

Origi is yet to score for Liverpool after arriving at Anfield in the summer at the end of his loan spell at former club Lille.

With just 16 goals in 89 appearances for the French club, the young striker has plenty of work to do to live up to his price-tag, but he feels his time will come.

“Everybody has encouraging words for me so I just have to continue like this and it will be okay,” Origi added as he looks ahead to a bright future at Liverpool.
