'A monster': Jurgen Klopp praises Divock Origi for his aerial ability

Liverpool travel to Italy to face AC Milan this week and Jurgen Klopp is set to rotate his team after seeing the Reds grind out a 1-0 win at Wolves at the weekend.

It was Divock Origi who got the goal at Molineux. The Belgian striker once again coming up trumps for Klopp with a key goal at a key time. Indeed, a lot has been said about Origi’s impact over the last few days.

Ahead of Milan, Origi is pushing for a start. And Klopp, who has been giving his pre-match press conference today, has lavished praise on Origi once more, including some praise for his aerial ability.

He’s a positive person. He is talented, he shoots left and right, he is really quick, in the air – he is a monster. He is an interesting package,” Klopp said.

“His skillset is a special thing – he can come in and play brilliantly. The biggest game in our history against Barcelona in 2019, he started and he was incredible. In specific moments, Divock is absolutely outstanding and everybody was really happy on Saturday. It’s a nice story.”

The Reds are already comfortably through to the next round in Europe. Impressively, they have won all five games.

TBR’s View: Origi deserves another chance at Milan this week

And he’ll probably get it, listening to Klopp today. Origi cemented his legacy with that winner at Wolves and he’ll be looking for more in Milan you’d suspect.

In fairness to the Belgian, he has been patient and been a fantastic servant for the club. To sit on the bench for so long and still be able to come on and have an impact is a big testament to his quality.

Now, though, he’ll be looking to build some momentum. And a goal or two in Milan will do his chances no harm.
