Liverpool’s Belgian striker Divock Origi celebrates scoring his team’s fourth goal during the English League Cup quarter-final football match against Southampton 

Kenyan international goalkeeper Arnold Origi has backed his cousin Divock Origi, currently plying his trade with Liverpool in the English Premier League, to becaome a star player for the Anfield outfit with time.

Divock has had a stellar rise, from the Genk Academy in Belgium to Lille in France then Liverpool after a fine show at the 2014 FIFA World Cup and Arnold feels the youngster is more or less learning the hard way.

The striker scored a treble when his team thumped Southampton 6 – 1 in a League Cup encounter and Arnold says the best of his cousin is yet to be seen and believes he will prosper due to the belief shown in him byu the current boss Jurgen Klopp.

“Divock will come good; he has not had it easy so far in his career, rising from the academy to Lille and the World Cup then shortly after he is at Liverpool, playing in a very tough league.

“He has not had enough time to learn but has something special in him and soon he will be a better player. The good thing is that the new manager believes in him and I think Klopp is a right coach for him,” he said.
