Origi was handed a rare start in the Champions League ties with Atalanta and FC Midttjylland, with Klopp seen launching a rant at the striker in the first of those games.
In a further blow to Origi’s Liverpool hopes, Takumi Minamino appears to have moved ahead of him with Klopp full of praise for the Japan international.
“Taki is training well,” Klopp said last month. “It’s just a strong team, and offensively – thank God – we didn’t have the same problems as the other positions. It’s hard to get in this team – that’s how it is.
“But no dip in form, just a challenge. Bobby (Firmino) plays like 12 instruments in our orchestra!
“He’s very important for our rhythm. We can play well without him as well.
“Taki is a sensational boy and a great player, so he will face that challenge. His time will come, no doubt.”
