‘He is back on our landscape’: Klopp says Liverpool forgotten man is back in favour

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp did not give much of a chance to several players from his bench due to the fact that he came into this season with three highly-rated strikers who can be relied upon to score goals.

The Liverpool manager was not necessarily blessed with a formidable front-line after he was appointed as the replacement for Brendan Rodgers back in 2015.

Klopp has maintained the attacking philosophy which he carried out at Borussia Dortmund in Germany and the Reds have been making major progress every season.

However, the fact that the likes of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah are all guaranteed a starting spot in the team means there are a couple of forwards who have not been enjoying as much playing time as they should.

Divock Origi, who came close to leaving the club during the summer transfer window last year, has been limited to the role of a squad player for much of this season.

Even so, the Belgium goalscorer has managed to make a difference when he has played and Klopp has revealed that Origi is now a player who is ‘back on our landscape’ as he plans for next season.

“When you think about how much he was not playing, maybe you think that I don’t like the player that much or I don’t trust him too much.” the Liverpool manager said, as quoted by TBR

“But that is not actually right. It is difficult to come in a team when you have Salah, Mane and Firmino. I’m very happy that he is there again and he is really back on our landscape.”
