One of the criticisms that has been aimed at AC Milan this season is the lack of contribution from the summer transfer market, and Divock Origi is a symbol of that at the moment.
MilanNews recall that Origi arrived on a free transfer after winning a Champions League and a Premier League as a protagonist with Liverpool. The Belgian has had various difficulties since his arrival, starting with the fact he missed virtually all of the preseason preparation due to the continuation of a muscle issue he picked up at the end of his time in England.
With a few minor injuries since the tally reads as follows: 16 matches played, 1 goal scored and 1 assist amassed, both of which against Monza on 22 October. He has missed eight games which means that he has not been non-existent, but so far he has proven to be an unreliable deputy to Olivier Giroud.
A turning point is expected from the summer additions and above all from Origi, who has won everything in his career at club level, and he was often decisive in key victories for the Reds such as against Barcelona in the Champions League semi-finals, in the final that followed against Spurs and in several Merseyside derbies.
If the likes of De Ketelaere, Vranckx and Thiaw can be given more time to show their full potential, the Belgian must turn a corner quickly given his experience but also his salary, perhaps starting on Tuesday in the capital against Lazio.
Exactly when was Origi a protagonist in this Liverpool squad i wonder?? Protagonist of the bench warmers
Playing 4 2 1 2 1,you need to have excellent individuals. Pioli managed to played that with Ibrahimovic, he was best back than. Now Leao upgraded his play, but on the otherhand Rebic, Origi, Salatamaker, and Diaz are second class players I.e. Serie B quality players. Others are good in first team, but playing too much minutes. Giroud is too old.
Milan need to refresh squad from next summer.
Origi, Giroud, and others who have not performed so far should leave by Summer coming.
After 3 years a turning point must come soon for origi
What turning point are they expecting from Origi? He is exactly the player they signed, always injured and never scored more than 7 or 8 goals in a league season.
Thats why he was 4th or 5th choice at Liverpool.
Im sorry that M&M or whoever was responsible didn’t actually look into his history.
But hey lots of fans on here didn’t want Dybala! The recent Serie A MVP and in his prime.
The real problem with Origi is not his form, its how do you get rid of him?
“The real problem with Origi is not his form, its how do you get rid of him?”
LOL. Simple. You wait until his contract runs out. That’s the Milan way. 🙂
The problem at this juncture is he’s not getting those 8 goals per league season. If he was, even as the minimum, it would have made quite a difference compared to his current pace for 2.
