Origi eyes title under ‘world class’ Rodgers


ORIGI-WOLFBURGLONDON, June 4- Liverpool forward Divock Origi expects to be challenging for the Premier League title ahead of his long-awaited arrival at Anfield.

The Belgium international was signed after an impressive World Cup last season before being loaned back to Ligue 1 club Lille. He will head to Merseyside with the club desperately in need of a goal scorer after the likes of Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert failed to make an impact.

The Belgian youngster has labelled beleaguered manager Brendan Rodgers a ‘world class coach’

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “I think Liverpool is a wonderful club that deserves to be at the top and to be honest with the players they have, with the quality they have, then they should be finishing at the top of the league.

“I’m very happy to be going there. Brendan Rodgers is a very good coach and he has proved that so it will be very exciting to work with a world class coach.”

“Most of all it is important to be at a good club where people believe in you and where you feel good and at Liverpool I had a really good feeling and they have experience of working with young players. It’s always nice to play with good players.

“The important thing is that I work hard and then I think everything will be okay.”
