Liverpool boss Klopp: I expected to lose Origi last summer

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits he expected to lose Divock Origi in the summer.

Origi proved the matchwinner at Wolves on Saturday.

Klopp remarked: "If I would be in another club I would go for him and I thought that would happen, that's true, because he didn't have massive game time. But, again, I cannot believe that people think if you don't play for Liverpool you cannot be good.

"This team is outstanding and if you are our No.12, 13 or 14 you have to be outstanding – and Div is. I am very happy that he is still here, actually. I didn't expect it to happen, but I wouldn't have been surprised.

"He is a top striker, a top boy. He is already here at Liverpool for a long time; he came here very young and has scored some of the most important goals in the history of this club. He is a positive boy and I am really happy."
