Premier League: Divock Origi expects bright future under Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool young striker Divock Origi believes Liverpool are determined to make further progress next season under manager Jurgen Klopp. The German boss took over in October after Brendan Rodgers left the club but only managed to lead the Reds to an eighth-place finish in the Premier League. They also reached the finals of the League Cup and the Europa League, but lost both trophies to Manchester City and Sevilla. Origi has enjoyed a good season finale, scoring five goals during the last month of the campaign.

"With Klopp, we played in two finals," Origi said in a Sky Sports interview. "We lost them but as a group we have a lot of talent. It is good for me to play with big players and take steps every day. We are going to do everything to do this and I feel we have the qualities also. It will be an exciting season for us. We have more training time and we have to use this to become better." Divock Origi will play with the Belgium national team at Euro 2016 after having already featured at the 2014 World Cup.

Liverpoool's Christian Benteke, Everton's Romelu Lukaku and Marseille's Michy Batshuayi will be Origi's competitors for a slot in the Belgium first eleven. The 21-year-old striker has been working on his strength lately, hoping to improve his performances. "A lot of things have happened this year, a lot of good moments and lower moments so I've gained a lot of experience playing for a big club like Liverpool," Origi said. "The Premier League, for me, is the best league in the world, the most intensive league. It was important for me to take this step. I've been in the gym a lot, working hard. For me it was important to do a lot of bodyweight training because you can be a lot more explosive and quicker and you can be at your best."

Liverpool are 9/1 at Bet365 to win the Premier League title next season.

    Divock Origi is a huge talent, no doubt about that. And I think that Kloop likes his, and will probably be in his plans for the next seasons aswell. Only problem for this young talent is lack of games. His competition for starting eleven is Sturridge, Firmino and Benteke. First one suffers a lot of injuries, second one was one of their best players this season and third one is about to leave. If Kloop doesn't bring any striker to replace Benteke, which is unlikely, Origi might have great season ahead of him.

    Divock Origi showed some remarkable skills in the end of the season.He is truely talented striker,but It wont be easy for him to gain minutes in next season. Premier League is a big challenge and Origi must give everything he can to do good in the chances he gets.Klopp will find a spot for him,but everything is on him now.

    No doubt there is a huge expectations from the Liverpool fans and they are closely related to Jurgen Klopp and his group of young players, maybe even those expectations are not very realistic but let's see what will happen in the upcoming season because I think it' would show if we could expect this young team to become in really good one or not.
