Liverpool’s Divock Origi will not seek a move away from the club this summer, having accepted his role as a super-sub at Anfield.
The Belgian striker has found himself on the outside looking in for much of his Liverpool career, with the established front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino ensuring playing time is at a minimum.
When he has been given a chance Origi has often failed to deliver, as was seen in the recent win over Aston Villa in which he disappointed for an hour before being taken off.
That game, and his performance, epitomised most of his time at the club and there have been numerous suggestions he could be moved on if Liverpool look to reshape the squad.
However, it seems that he won’t be leaving with Het Laatste Nieuws reporting that he’s ‘okay’ with being a super-sub at the club.
They explain that the striker is seen as a ‘hero’ at Liverpool for his goals in important moments – several in the Champions League success in particular – but he is ‘equally a source of frustration’ too because of his irregular performances.
But, after signing a new five-year deal last summer, Origi ‘doesn’t feel like an adventure’ at another club and instead intends to remain on Merseyside.
He wants to play for trophies with Liverpool and is willing to put a place in the European Championships with Belgium ‘on the line’ to do so.
