Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen offered his honest assessment of Divock Origi after the Belgian scored the winner in the 94th minute of his side’s win over Wolves on Saturday.
The 26-year-old was introduced as a substitute in the second half and attacked in injury time spark jubilant scenes even in the Liverpool tunnels and among travel fans.
“Whenever he started, I have to admit, he let me down,” Owen told Premier League Productions (via HITC).
“I know you will say, ‘What about Barcelona in the Champions League?’ Of course, he had his most unbelievable moments in a Liverpool shirt, but overall when he started he let me down.
“I think he’s an influential sub, but he’ll probably start a few more now, especially in January.”
While there won’t be many Red Devils that think Origi deserves the starting spot, when called up, he usually delivers.
He didn’t make a fuss or spit out his dummy, he seemed to be working hard on the training ground and patiently waiting for his chance.
With Sadio Mane and Mo Salah going to the Africa Cup of Nations in January, we will need offensive options ready to ramp up and provide firepower.
The former Lille man will be brimming with confidence once again after a winning performance at Molineux.
With several rotations expected for Tuesday’s trip to the San Siro to face AC Milan, Divock will lick his lips at the thought of starting and showing he can deliver attack as a starter. dynamic, instead of secondary.
