Liverpool had signed Divock Origi from Lille in January last season and sent him back on loan to the French club. Origi is set to make his move to Anfield in the summer and was seen as the man to resolve Liverpool’s striker concerns.
As it stands, Liverpool fans (also called as Kops) have been worried after seeing the latest edition of French newspaper L’equipe, which has named Origi as the worst player of the Ligue 1 in 2014-15 season.
Liverpool paid £10million to sign Origi last season after the Belgian striker enjoyed a breakthrough season in 2013 and had a decent world cup campaign as well.
Origi has been tipped as one of the most promising youngsters in recent times, but to get this unwanted recognition by L’equipe might not have been the best thing for his developments.
Liverpool are already battling with Raheem Sterling’s contract situation as the England winger is refusing to commit to any deal with the Anfield club.
It was further suggested that Liverpool’s embarrassing 6-1 defeat to Stoke has further put an end to any hopes of Sterling’s new contract after the winger was omitted from the squad by the manager Brendan Rodgers.
The manager himself is the dark over his future after admitting that he does not know what would happen with his fate at the club. Former Swansea manager did say that if the owners want him to leave, he will happily resign and walk away from the club.
L’equipe worst team of the Ligue1 season
Liverpool are dealing with a striker crisis as the moment as Daniel Sturridge missed major part of the season due to injury and Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini just don’t know how to score goals.
Liverpool could only managed 52 goals this season as compared to 101 in the season prior to that. Therefore, Origi was seen as the man to revive Liverpool football club but his 8 goals in 33 matches in Ligue 1 cannot be taken as a promising sign at all.
Divock Origi is now L’equipe worst player of the Ligue 1 as well, which has left the Kops thinking whether Origi will be a good buy or not?
