Football News

Belgian youngster Divock Origi has revealed that he's in contact with Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet. 

As reported by the club's official site, the 20-year-old, who signed for the Reds last summer before being loaned back to French outfit Lille, has admitted that he's asked the shot-stopper about what life is like at Anfield. 

Origi will finally arrive on English soil on a permanent basis this summer, and he's insisted that he's excited by the prospect of lining up for the club. 

The striker told the club's website: "Just some typical questions about the club, the atmosphere, how the club is doing and about the life in Liverpool because it's a big change for me.

"Simon has helped me a lot and given me a lot of information about the city. He told me it's a nice city and advised me on where you can live and the nice places to go. He told me he really likes it and feels at home there."

Origi has also revealed that Mignolet told him that it's a special feeling to run out at Anfiled, as the young forward continued by saying: "He told me it is a special feeling, but that's something I knew already.

"He told me before every game there is a fantastic atmosphere from the supporters and everybody at the club, which helps you to play even better. It makes me excited because it's something I want to experience."

Facetime with Januzaj

In fact, the same report from Liverpool's official website has revealed that the player also uses Facetime with Manchester United youngster Adnan Januzaj. 

Next season, of course, the duo will become major rivals on the club scene, but may well have a huge career alongside each other playing for the Belgian national side. 

There's no doubt about it, in years to come, both Origi and Januzaj could become key players in England's elite division. 

Must step up 

Despite his age, the youngster may well have a big role to play at Anfield in the 2015/16 campaign. After all, under the Rodgers regime, the club's strikers have endured difficult seasons this time around. 

Mario Baloetlli and Rickie Lambert, who both arrived at the club this past summer, have failed to really get going, while Daniel Sturridge has struggled to stay fit. 

Liverpool fans will no doubt be hoping the club invest in the attacking department once again this summer, but don't be surprised if Origi is given a number of opportunities to impress.
