CM: Origi a €16m bet by Maldini – Milan need to rejuvenate their attack

By Isak Möller -

Divock Origi got the chance from start against Empoli but had a really poor evening, failing to impress the Milan fans. The Belgian was booed as he left the pitch and his form is becoming a serious problem. 

Origi arrived on a free transfer ahead of the season and after struggling with injuries initially, many were hoping that he would find his stride. However, that certainly hasn’t been the case and yesterday was another example of that.

As highlighted by, it’s hard to understand what happened to the strike that could make an impact for Liverpool. The injuries are no longer bothering him and that makes the case even more strange, as he looked completely lost yesterday.

It was the first time a Milan player got properly booed by the San Siro crowd this season. And it’s hard to say that he didn’t deserve it, because there were so many obvious mistakes.

As the report concludes, Paolo Maldini made a €16m bet (€4m per season until 2026) and it isn’t paying off thus far. In the summer, Milan will have to rejuvenate the attack and it remains to be seen if Origi will stay.

    1. The new era gen z belgium haven’t reach excelent gameplay. Only the old era (KDB, Lukaku) nailed for 2nd rank in football nation.

  1. We must get rid origi and Rebic next summer, sell or loan or swap player . Both of them already deadwood. Rebic reach 30 years and and play like no vision as LW. Origi more awful than lazetic or colombo , he is truly failed signing player with high salary 4m euro nett/ season. I think better stop buying belgian talent next season and move on to east europe /italian/ france talent next summer. Belgian talent like Saladmaker,Origi,Aster,CDK so far have very few impact for AC Milan

  2. Milan should cover their losses and offer Origi 1-2M€ in cash to terminate the contract in the summer as no one will be stupid enough to pay for him.
