Liverpool play down Divock Origi absence for Hertha Berlin defeat

Liverpool played down Divock Origi's absence from their friendly defeat to Hertha Berlin on Thursday.

Origi was conspicuous by his absence during Liverpool's 4-3 defeat by Hertha in pre-season yesterday - but there was a simple reason behind his non-involvement.

Liverpool ramped up their preparations for the 2021/22 campaign with a 90-minute work-out against Hertha on Thursday night in Innsbruck, Austria.

The Liverpool Echo says Origi's absence was put down as a 'precautionary' move due to a 'minor injury'.

Reports have suggested that Liverpool need to sell some of their current players before they can add to their squad.

Origi scored Liverpool's only goal in their 1-1 friendly draw against Wacker Innsbruck on July 20 and remains a part of Jurgen Klopp's pre-season.
