Divock Origi praises Jurgen Klopp for already improving his game

The youngster has been impressive when called upon by Liverpool this season.

Divock Origi has praised Jurgen Klopp for already improving his game both tactically and mentally, in comments to the Liverpool Echo.

Origi originally joined the club under former manger Brendan Rodgers, spending a year on loan at Lille before returning this summer.

He did not get many chances under the Northern Irishman, but has been handed the chance to impress by his successor Jurgen Klopp, putting in several impressive displays this season.

And despite only having worked under the German for a relatively short time, he says that Klopp has already improved several areas of his game.

“Klopp is a very different type of manager,” Origi told the Liverpool Echo.

“You can see his drive, his experience, the power he brought to the club. He’s such an important part of the club.

“I have learned so much from working with him already. Not only tactically but also in terms of the mental aspects of the game. I enjoy playing for him.”

Origi will now be hoping he can play his part in the remaining games of the season, with the Reds competing on two fronts.

There is a chance for him to impress as well as the Reds have struggled for goals this season as Christian Benteke continues to disappoint and Daniel Sturridge works his way to full fitness.

Klopp has already shown his desire to give youth a chance as well, and it wouldn’t’ be surprising to see him turn to Origi again at some stage in the season’s conclusion.
