Origi ignores exit talk

Origi ignores exit talk

Liverpool striker Divock Origi has dismissed the rumours linking him with a move away from Anfield.

The 21-year-old has vowed to fight for his first team spot at Anfield even though he knows he is likely to struggle to make the first XI, although he has become more and more influential from the bench.

Origi's lack of action led to Italian giants Juventus being linked with the Belgium international with a view to a move in January but he has ruled it out and says he is happy to stay and fight for his place, for now.

‘I’ve not heard it. It’s a rumour, as there are many. No, I concentrate fully on Liverpool and the Belgium national team,’ Origi told Belgian outlet HLN.

"I’ve started both matches of the League Cup, and I scored in both games, Liverpool have won almost every game.‘We lost against Burnley and drew against Tottenham. 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 than I was last season.

"I scored 10 goals in no time. Everything can turn quickly in football.’
