‘Liverpool don’t need much, just a better Origi’ – Carragher not expecting big spend from Klopp

The Reds legend admits there is little room for improvement in a star-studded squad, with another forward likely to top a short shopping list Liverpool are unlikely to spend big in the next transfer window, admits Jamie Carragher, with “a better Divock Origi” likely to be the only entry on Jurgen Klopp’s wish list. The Reds have found considerable value in their recent forays into a difficult market. Mohamed Salah, Alisson, Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mane have all become star turns at Anfield, while the hope is that January arrival Takumi Minamino will soon justify the faith shown in him.

Pep Guardiola Hasn’t ‘Reached A European Final Without Messi, Klopp Has Won One With Origi,’ Says Eni Aluko

Eni Aluko has made a bold claim that Pep Guardiola must lift the Champions League title with Manchester City to be considered an all-time great. The 48-year-old Spaniard hasn't won Europe's top-tier club competition since he captured the trophy twice with Barcelona in the 2008-09 and 2010-11 seasons. Juventus forward Aluko, 32, believes that Guardiola's failure to reach the final without Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi could see him snubbed in the conversation for all-time greats. And the former England international took a shot at the former Barcelona boss by saying that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp managed to win the trophy with Divock Origi last season. "Guardiola has never got to a European final without Lionel Messi, whereas Klopp has won one with Divock Origi," she wrote ...

Teams Divock Origi Scores Against All Suffer The Following Season

Football teams beware, Divock Origi has a curse to pass on and it will damage your season. Liverpool striker Origi became somewhat of a hero at Anfield last season. The Belgian scored last minute goals in the Premier League to keep the Reds' dream of winning the title alive and more importantly scored in the Champions League semi final and final. If Barcelona and Spurs thought his goals were a big blow at the time then what they didn't realise is the lasting effect the goals would have on them. The six teams he scored against last season have all had bad starts to the season whilst five teams he scored against in previous seasons have suffered relegations. Since conceding against Origi, Barcelona have lost the Copa del Rey final and started La Liga with just three wins from the...
