Origi demonstrated one of his main weapons during Monza win – key stat shows it

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan striker Divock Origi got his first goal in his first start for the club during the 4-1 rout of Monza at San Siro last weekend.

It has not been the easiest of starts to life at Milan for Origi as he failed to fully shrug off a muscle issue he sustained at the end of his time with Liverpool and it developed into a tendon problem that needed the help of the Belgian national team doctors.

However, the sold-out San Siro crowd were able to appreciate all the qualities of Origi as he not only started for the first time against Monza but he scored too with a rocket of a shot into the top right corner from 18 yards out.

SempreMilan.it recall how the 27-year-old has shown that he has the physical qualities that are perhaps missing from other options as he worked very hard and won all the speed duels.

Origi was actually the fastest player on the pitch during the game against Monza as he reached a top speed of exactly 34km/h, which is a useful reminder that he does not just offer size and hold-up play but also genuine pace when in stride.

  1. To me Giroud is the absolute best striker of the two not just for his goals ,but for his immense strength and technical ability..His awareness of others is second to none ..What a superb signing he was ..
    Plenty more goals to come from Olivier Giroud..
    Yes world class .just ask some of the defenders that have to try to mark him ..I have always rated him ..
    He deserves to be called up to the France squad for the World Cup .
