Liverpool’s Origi ready to fight for first-team spot
Striker Divock Origi does not fear rivalry for spots at Liverpool and the striker said he is prepared to battle for a first group spot after the club got a large group of players amid the nearby season.
Origi, who at first attempted to split into the beginning line-up, awed last season and scoring 10 objectives in 33 appearances.
In any case, his structure was upset by a lower leg damage he managed in April.
“We are at a major club and that is one of the difficulties of being at a major club – that is the thing that pushes you to go higher,” the 21-year-old told the club’s site.
Chief Juergen Klopp has included seven players, including midfielders Marko Grujic and Giorginio Wijnaldum, and forward Sadio Mane, to his squad.
“We need to push each other and backing each other so we can accomplish that. It’s the reason I came to Liverpool, to have challenges,” Origi included.
“We as a whole have qualities however we need to join and show we can do incredible things together.”
Liverpool, who completed eighth in the Premier League last season, will begin their new crusade with a trek to Arsenal on August 13.
