Liverpool boss Klopp made Origi demand before new deal

"It's an wonderful club, we have a good group, the staff are fantastic".

Everton defender Ramiro Funes Mori's terrible challenge in a Merseyside derby - for which he was red carded - had lingering implications but it was only last season that Origi, who spent the 2017-18 campaign on loan at Wolfsburg, began to thrive again. An injury woe refrained him from making his senior debut during the 2018-19 campaign, but the teenager finally represented them at a senior level and made an early impression by scoring a brace.

"I seem to have come through it quite well, and I think it has shaped me into the player I am".

Despite this, Jurgen Klopp does not believe Liverpool will be having the most active of transfer windows.

Liverpool eased to a 6-0 win at Tranmere Rovers on Thursday in the teams' first preseason game of the summer.

He then emerged from the bench to score in the Champions League final against Tottenham.

"Brewster, Oxlade-Chamberlain didn't play a year ago". Manager Jurgen Klopp said to be prepared to see the youngster a lot this season, as the team chose not to replace striker Daniel Sturridge in the transfer market.

Tommy Robinson Receives 9 Month Jail Term Over Breaching Court Reporting Rules
Several supporters of Tommy Robinson have been arrested following clashes with police after he was jailed for contempt of court. The crowd, booing and chanting "we want Tommy out", started pelting police officers with bottles and cans, the BBC reported.

Liverpool striker Divock Origi has stressed he wants to continue progressing and make the best use of the next few years, after signing a long-term contract at Anfield.

Brewster, the standout player against Tranmere with two goals and an assist in the first half, was one such solution to alleviating the attacking burden on Firmino, Salah and Mane.

There is a real possibility that Origi starts the season as a regular starter.

"He has to play different positions as well - the centre, wing is possible I think, we will see how we line up, but there will be opportunities for him".

"Maybe it has a little bit to do with winning the Champions League but during the season we have to go for winning something new and can not always look back".

"I don't think we will change [much]; we can not change a lot, but we will not", said the manager.
