Liverpool boss Klopp on Origi: ‘I hope one day he finds a manager who plays him more than me’


Jurgen Klopp has said he hopes Liverpool match-winner Divock Origi “one day finds a manager that plays him more than I do”.

Origi, 26, was Liverpool’s hero against Wolves on Saturday, coming on as a second-half substitute to score a last-gasp winner.

The match marked Origi’s 100th substitute appearance for Liverpool and was his 10th goal from off the bench for the club in the Premier League. No player has netted more from the bench for the club in the competition.

Origi has come close to leaving Liverpool on more than one occasion and Klopp appeared to suggest after the match that the Belgium international deserved to have more playing time.

“(Origi) is an incredible striker and for different reasons he did not play that often, but I hope one day he finds a manager that plays him more than I do,” Klopp said.

“He’s one of the best finishers I’ve ever seen in my life. In this great team, with our (front) three, he doesn’t play all the time but he is a very positive boy, loves the club, wants to contribute and he did in an incredible way.”
