Origi happy to wait for his chance


Divock Origi is happy to wait for his chance at Liverpool.

Origi scored ten goals, including five in the last six games, last season but he has managed just five Premier League appearances from the bench this year, while his two starts have come in the EFL Cup.

Liverpool are currently fourth in the table, just two points off leaders Manchester City, and Origi accepts that Jurgen Klopp will not change his team while they are still winning.

"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," Origi told Belgian news site HLN.

"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."

The 21-year-old has recently been linked with a move to Juventus but he insists he is happy at Anfield and is not interested in leaving Liverpool.

"I’ve not heard it. It’s a rumour, as there are many. No, I concentrate fully on Liverpool and the Belgium national team," he added.

"I’ve started both matches of the League Cup, and I scored in both games, Liverpool have won almost every game."
