Comment on Divock Origi believes his hard work is starting to pay off at Liverpool by Skietje

The boy had a good game, a very good game. Lets not make more of it than that. Lets not build the young lad up into something and at the same time dump loads of pressure on his shoulders. He may be paid well for the work he does, but he’s not much more than a kid, I don’t know how much responsibility I could take at his age, and specially when the whole world is watching. It is a lot to expect a young lad like him, earlier in the season to have to play up front alone, simply because he was the one striker we had who was still fit enough to tie his shoelaces. Maybe some of us were too quick to judge then already? I hadn’t seen anything of him in Belgium, or France. It looks to me at first impressions, that for now we’d be getting more out of him and he will enjoy his football more playing as part of a striking pair. His second two goals were very nicely taken, for different reasons, but he also picked Ibe out really well for his goal, it wasn’t just a hit it into the middle and hope. Great examples that if we can let him play his game, to his strengths we could have ourselves a little nugget of gold. I don’ t know, I see similarities in him with Neil Mellor. If nothing else I have already seen enough in that one game that I would rather have Origi on the bench than Borini.
