Under-used Liverpool ace responds to transfer speculation linking him with exit

Liverpool forward Divock Origi has insisted that Jurgen Klopp believes in him and in turn he’s willing to be patient and wait for opportunities.

The Belgian striker has struggled for regular minutes again so far this season, featuring as a substitute in Premier League outings against Arsenal, Burnley, Tottenham, Chelsea and Swansea City.

Although he’s started both EFL Cup clashes thus far and scored in both games, he’s been left frustrated having failed to establish himself in Klopp’s starting line-up but insists that he feels the faith of his coach and will continue to work hard to break into the team on a more regular basis.

“I’ve started both matches of the League Cup, and I scored in both games, Liverpool have won almost every game,” he told HLN Television, as confirmed on Liverpool’s official website and by HLN journalist Kristof Terreur in the tweets seen below.

“A manager never changes his winning team. It does not matter to me. Klopp believes in me and says I have to be patient.

“He asked me to stay calm, which is not easy for a footballer. I want to play and be the decisive player that I was last season. I scored 10 goals in no time [so] everything can turn quickly in football.”

Competition at Anfield is certainly fierce, with Origi fighting it out with the likes of Roberto Firmino, Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho to name but a few in the advanced roles.

With Liverpool currently sat in fourth place in the Premier League as well as the fact that they’ve won their last four consecutive league games, Klopp isn’t likely to change anything with his line-up any time soon.

In turn, Origi may well have to continue to bide his time, but with the Reds looking to compete for silverware across the board, he will have to remain motivated and take his chance when it arrives.
