Rodgers confirms Liverpool contact with highly-impressive striker

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is already laying down plans to make sure Divock Origi hits it off at Anfield.

The 19-year-old Belgium striker is on a season-long loan at Lille as part of the £10m deal that saw him snap the Reds up permanently.

As quoted on the Daily Star website, Rodgers said: “We’re in regular contact with the kid, he’s a wonderful talent.

“I get all of his games downloaded from our recruitment team. We’re in contact, which is great, and we’re helping him with his game.

“He’s a big talent for someone so young and we’re looking at aspects of his game.

“When he plays in France, we get a download of the game here, analyse that and then feedback to him on areas he can improve in the game and what he’s doing very, very well, so when he comes into here next summer he’s prepared and we know the areas of his game that are his strengths.

“Hopefully in this time, he can improve in other areas.” © 2017 Frontier Theme
