Liverpool striker DivockOrigi has claimed that the Anfield club should aim to win the Premier League next season, as the Belgian prepares to return from his season-long loan to Lille. DivockOrigi will return to Anfield next season and the 20-year-old is desperate to make his mark on Merseyside.He expects to be challenging for the Premier League title ahead of his long-awaited arrival at Liverpool.
The Premier League side signed Origi from Lille for £10m last summer before sending the striker back to the French side on loan. Origi signed for Liverpool last summer and struggled to make a mark during his loan spell at Lille after scoring just eight goals in 33 games in Ligue 1.
However, the 20-year-old’s confidence does not appear to have been shaken, as he has been talked up Liverpool’s hopes ahead of making his debut for the Merseyside club. The Belgium international was signed after an impressive World Cup last season before being loaned back to Ligue 1 club Lille. He will head to Merseyside with the club desperately in need of a goal scorer as Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert failed to make an impact.
New arrival DivockOrigi insists Liverpool are good enough to win the Premier League title. “I think Liverpool is a wonderful club that deserves to be at the top and to be honest with the players they have, with the quality they have, then they should be finishing at the top of the league,” said Origi.
The Belgian youngster has labelled beleaguered manager Brendan Rodgers a ‘world class coach’. Origi’s nomination in L’Equipe’s worst team of the French league season last week suggests the striker still needs to convince critics that he has the qualities to shine in England’s top flight. “I’m very happy to be going there. Brendan Rodgers is a very good coach and he has proved that so it will be very exciting to work with a world-class coach.”
Origi will be looking to help to solve the goalscoring woes that affected Liverpool negatively during the Premier League and cup competitions this season. “’Most of all it is important to be at a good club where people believe in you and where you feel good and at Liverpool I had a really good feeling and they have experience of working with young players. The important thing is that I work hard and then I think everything will be okay,” added Origi.
