• Origi is confident his time will come at Liverpool
  • Origi is unfazed by Werner coming
  • Origi keeps the faith, patiently working to improve

Divock Origi is fully aware that his number will only be called on occasion when one of the main stars over at Liverpool gets injured. He has made good on the opportunities given to him although the potential addition of another star in Timo Werner could push him deeper down the rotation. Regardless, the 25-year-old is keeping the faith and believes Jurgen Klopp will make the proper adjustments and not entirely leave him in the cold.

For now, Origi hardly has qualms being one of the chief backups if anyone from among Mo Salah Sadio Mande and Robert Firminho is out due to injury or for some reason. Since he joined the club in 2015, the Belgian striker has appeared in 36 times and collected 33 goals to his credit. Like any footballer, Origi dreams of making the first team. But if transfer rumors linking Werner were to come true, the chances of him getting elevated to the regular status is not looking so good.

Regardless, it appears Origi is fine with where he is right now. He knows that he still in the development stages and seems to be content performing for The Reds to the best of his abilities when called upon. Looking ahead, the Belgian footballer is pretty confident that he will get that break and that he just needs to be satisfied with where he is right now, Het Laatste Nieuws reported.

"Klopp has given me the space to develop myself. I always listen to my instinct and continue to work," Origi said. "We have spoken with Liverpool and we have a nice course ahead of us. I just want to get better here," he added.

There is no denying that Origi has shown glimpses of promise. Origi stepped up last season and scored big goals for Liverpool last season. Among the highlights of his run include the lone goal for The Reds when they defeated Everton in the Premier League. In all, the Belgian is ready to answer the call whenever he is called to do so.

Things could change if The Reds can complete a deal for Werner. In a previous post, it was mentioned how the 24-year-old striker is ready to move out of RB Leipzig once Liverpool pays the required transfer fee. Die Roten Bullen is asking £52 million for Werner, an amount that could increase if The Reds do not act fast. Aside from Liverpool, other teams interested in the German striker include Bayern Munich and Chelsea.
