I’ll pass, never been good enough. I’d rather have Ings or Solanke.
Agreed, and that’s saying something given the quality, or lack of the other 2 have shown. This season was make or break for Origi but in truth he’s been a disappointment, remember him getting slated for his poor form at Wolfsburg. This was his chance to go out, play week in week out and show what he can do but he’s failed to deliver.
Keeping him serves no benefit, he literally can only play the CF role, can’t adapt his game at all from what I’ve seen. When he was here last season it meant Bobby being shifted out to the left and it hampered him massively. Put Bobby in the middle and he’s excelled, head and shoulders above Origi.
You want 2 good players for each position, battling and pushing each other for the match day start or to at least be deemed reliable back up and in all honesty, Origi, Ings, Sturridge and Solanke have all shown they aren’t at the level. Solanke I’m happy to see stay, given his age and first season settling in.
Origi is just another player from the Rodgers era that simply isn’t good enough, simple as that.
