Liverpool Striker Booed By Fans As Worrying Goal Drought Continues

The Belgian international’s poor form is a cause for concern…

Liverpool’s on-loan striker Divock Origi was been booed by Lille fans last night, as the striker missed a penalty against Wolfsburg and extended his lengthy goal drought.

The Belgian striker started the season in good form, scoring three goals. However, the striker has failed to score since the second of October, and by the end of last night’s game his drought had reached 923 minutes.

Mike Origi, the player’s father, spoke to the Belgian press and told them that his son is just tired and going through a patch of bad form. Origi was a revelation at the 2014 World Cup, and forced his way into the side ahead of Romelu Lukaku.

However, the minutes he got in Brazil, along with the short-preseason caused by his international exploits, may now be coming back to haunt him.

Earlier this season, with Mario Balotelli in terrible form, it was suggested in the press that the Reds might try to bring Origi back from his loan spell early.

This notion was dismissed by Brendan Rodgers however, who explained that Lille had only accepted the Reds offer for the 19-year-old on the condition that he would remain in France for this season.
