Liverpool starlet says they can challenge for the Premier League in 2015-16

The Reds finished sixth in the top-flight in 2014-15, but the Belgian striker believes they will improve.

Origi scored eight Ligue 1 goals for Lille in their 2013-14 campaign.

DIVOCK ORIGI SAYS he expects Liverpool to challenge for the Premier League title next season as he prepares to link up with the Reds this summer.

Liverpool agreed to sign the Belgium international in a £10 million deal from Lille in July but immediately loaned him back to the French club.

Brendan Rodgers’ side subsequently finished sixth, but Origi believes his new employers should be setting their sets higher in 2015-16.

“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,” he told Sky Sports.

“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.”

Origi, who scored eight Ligue 1 goals for Lille, also feels he has made the right decision by choosing to join the Reds, and believes the club’s track record of developing young players will serve him well at Anfield.

“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,” he added.

“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.”
