Liverpool star confident loan spell with stand him in good stead

Divock Origi is confident that a one-year spell at Wolfsburg will stand him in good stead as he attempts to break into the Liverpool team on a regular basis.

Origi scored 11 times in 43 appearances for Liverpool last season, but was sent on loan to Bundesliga side Wolfsburg during the summer transfer window.

The Belgian has scored once in five league appearances since arriving in Germany, and was widely praised for his performance in the 2-2 draw against Bayern Munich last month.

The 22-year-old has revealed that he plans to spend the entire 2017-18 campaign on loan with Wolfsburg before returning to Liverpool a better player next summer.

Origi told Sky Sports:

“I feel good, I feel I’m getting rhythm, I feel fit and happy. As a club and as a player, I think I made a good choice.

“I’m focusing on becoming a better player. I’m just focusing on Wolfsburg this year. It’s [for] one year. That’s what we agreed, a one-year deal at Wolfsburg.”

Origi signed a five-year contract with Liverpool in the summer of 2014, but was loaned back to Lille for the 2014-15 campaign.

In all, the forward has netted 23 times in 86 appearances for his Premier League club – hitting double figures in each of his first two seasons on Merseyside.
