Liverpool fans react to Divock Origi's comments about future

Divock Origi of Liverpool reacts during the Pre Season Friendly match between Liverpool and Athletic Club at Aviva Stadium on August 5, 2017 in Dublin, Ireland.

It's a make or break pre-season for Liverpool's Divock Origi, who vows to impress manager Jurgen Klopp.

Divock Origi has told Liverpool's official website that he hopes to let his "feet do the talking" as he bids to impress manager Jurgen Klopp this summer.

The Belgian striker returned to Melwood for pre-season training on Wednesday.

The 24-year-old spent the 2017-18 campaign on loan at Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga, netting only six times in 31 league appearances for the German outfit.

Origi told the club's website: "On and off the pitch last season, I think grew a lot. I tried to keep fit during the off-season and now I am very excited for the new season.

“I just have to keep my focus on enjoying myself on the pitch and giving everything. The next few weeks will show. The feet do the talking on the pitch, so we will see how it goes. I am positive.”

Klopp sanctioned his loan last summer, preferring to go with Roberto Firmino, Danny Ings and Dominic Solanke as his number nine options.

Only Firmino gave a good account of himself during the 2017-18 campaign, and some Liverpool fans believe that Origi, a £10 million signing by Brendan Rodgers four years ago, is a better option than Ings and Solanke.

Here is how some of them reacted to his comments:

Beyond Firmino, Klopp's striking options - including Daniel Sturridge - are quite tame, it must be said and it's something the Reds boss must address this summer.

If the Brazilian number nine suffers a long-term injury next season then Klopp will need a top-drawer replacement and although Origi might be the best candidate to replace him for now, he is the best of a rather poor bunch.
