Liverpool boss Klopp clears up Origi injury concern

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has played down injury concerns for Divock Origi.

Origi did not start Liverpool's pre-season friendly with Hertha BSC on Saturday as planned after feeling tightness in his hamstring.

The striker was due to begin the contest, but was withdrawn from the line-up during the warm-up as a precautionary measure.

Origi was replaced in the XI by Dominic Solanke.

Speaking after the game, manager Jürgen Klopp said: "He felt just a cramp, it was pretty much the same as what Dejan [Lovren] felt before the game and that's why we said, 'Thank you, no risk today'."
