and speaks before Carabao Cup, first leg, Carabao Cup semi-final against ArsenalKlopp confirmed that the currently injured Origi would not go anywhere.
He told the club’s official website: “The degree is not available. Div has not trained, Div is still injured and still recovering.
“So he can’t help us at the moment but I don’t see any kind of scenario – pretty much everything can happen in life – but from this moment I will say he will be here (after the transfer window in January).
“And hopefully he’ll be fit soon because we can actually put him to good use now.”
Now it seems certain that he’ll let Origi cancel his contract and leave for free.
This scenario would work out well for both parties, as it saves Liverpool having to make an addition in January to their squad. It will also give Divock Origi a bumper pay day at his next club.
