Divock Origi exemplifies the attitude being shown in training by the Liverpool players not currently getting chances in the first team, said Jürgen Klopp.
The striker, who spent last season on loan at Wolfsburg, was named on the bench for the Reds’ past two games against Huddersfield Town and Red Star Belgrade.
“Div is a good example for players who were not too much involved in the last couple of weeks because he is doing outstandingly,” explained Klopp.
“Dom Solanke is in a good moment and nobody can see it because he is not playing. That’s the problem – like Clyney, like Alberto Moreno and all these guys.
“You can only play really good football when you train well and you can only train well if the training group is really strong. They are really strong.
“I forgot Joel Matip… he would play for 97 per cent of Premier League and Bundesliga clubs, I am 100 per cent sure. He was not in the squad for the last game and he is in outstanding shape.
“That makes life comfortable for a manager on one hand and on the other quite difficult, because we need these players 100 per cent.
“For the last two games it was clear that Div deserved to be involved. In the end, the games were not that we had to use him.
“But if the boys continue like they trained in the last few weeks and months then they will have their moments, 100 per cent.”
