Liverpool loanee Origi set to persist with dreadful Wolfsburg loan

Divock Origi is not giving up on his loan spell at Wolfsburg, his father has claimed.

Despite a strong start to the season, the Liverpool forward is enduring a horror run of form, having only scored once since November. The nightmare run culminated in him being dragged before half-time Saturday's 3-0 defeat to Hoffenheim.

But his father Mike, who also acts as his adviser, insists the 22-year-old is determined to rectify the situation.

"He was very disappointed after the game," he told Wolfsburger Allgemeine Zeitung.

"But the coach is the boss, he is subordinated to. Divock wants to offer himself again in every training session for a starting place. He is not happy with this situation and will push himself again.

"Divock is focused 100% on Wolfsburg and wants to help the club in the relegation battle. Contact with Liverpool and coach Jurgen Klopp has not been around for a while because my son just wants to focus on Wolfsburg.

"Divock came to Wolfsburg to become a better player. And he has become one in my eyes. We will get together after the season with all involved and discuss the further career."
