A lot of Liverpool fans have been speculating over Divock Origi’s future in response to a tweet from The Athletic’s James Pearce, in which he shared comments from Reds manager Jurgen Klopp about the Belgian forward.
He didn’t even make Liverpool’s bench for their most recent top-flight game, Sunday’s 4-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers, and Klopp has now revealed that he wasn’t absent from the squad for that game due to injury, which suggests that the German manager believes other options are simply better than Origi at the moment.
So, how did these Liverpool fans react to Klopp’s comments on Origi?
A lot of Reds fans have been responding to Pearce’s tweet to speculate over the £14.4m-rated man’s future, calling for the Belgium ace to be sold and discussing the ‘strange’ issue of his lack of playing time. One supporter admitted Origi is forever a ‘legend’ due to his iconic goals against the likes of Everton, Barcelona and Tottenham.
Hes nowhere near good enough now. Time to go me thinks.

He will always be adored by us but he is not going to bring the club forward. Time to cash it in, it’ll be good for club and divok and hopefully he will lead Belgium in the euros!

Translated = Divock is not in my plans. Hopefully he hands in a tranfer request.

Strange situation with him…he is an Anfield legend with the goals he has scored but he is just nowhere good enough at the moment…

Do you think Liverpool should sell Origi?
