Divock Origi has revealed that he receives regular messages of support from Liverpool’s management and compatriot Simon Mignolet tells him about the fantastic team atmosphere at the club.

The Belgium international was signed by the Merseyside giants last summer from French Ligue 1 outfit Lille and was promptly loaned out to them for a season-long loan.

This season, Origi has netted seven league goals and provided his team-mates with four assists to help Rene Girard’s side reach eighth spot in the league table.

The 20-year-old is set to join Brendan Rodgers’ squad this summer and he is looking forward to playing in the Premier League for Liverpool alongside Mignolet.

“It's always nice to have someone in the team that you know and who speaks the same language, but obviously I speak some English also, so I hope the integration will be okay”, Origi told the Liverpool website.  


He further added that the Liverpool goalkeeper has given him great reviews about the atmosphere in the club.

“I am sure there is a good atmosphere within the group.

“Simon told me the team is very human and that's very good to hear. I have no worries about that.”

The forward revealed that he receives constant messages of support from Liverpool’s management, who follow his games in France. And the youngster added that it is nice of the club to keep an eye on his development.

“Some people from the team's management have also sent me some messages and let me know they're watching all the games.

“It's very nice to have the team supporting me and watching often."
