Liverpool youngster believes he can fill striking void

Liverpool ace Divock Origi is confident he can help new boss Jurgen Klopp succeed at Anfield following a spate of injuries to his attacking teammates, according the Daily Star.

The Belgian international was thrown in to the starting line-up for Klopp’s maiden game in charge, a goalless draw away at Tottenham Hotspur.

Daniel Sturridge failed a late fitness test for the game, and has only recently returned from a long term layoff.

Summer signing Danny Ings was ruled out for the rest of the season following a serious ACL injury, with fellow new arrival Christian Benteke also out.

‘It’s a new system and I was very excited, just a bit unlucky with the finishing’, he told the club’s official website.

‘I just have to work hard and the goals will come.’

Former Borussia Dortmund boss Klopp had previously revealed how he attempted to sign Origi while in charge of the German giants, though he instead joined the Reds in 2014.

‘While I was Dortmund coach I thought about him, but he was too expensive.’

After joining from Lille, he was loaned back to the Ligue 1 outfit but could now get a run in the first team for the Merseyside giants.
