“Definitely not for me, not at all.
“I’ve obviously watched a lot of Liverpool over past seasons, and, you know, he’s been brilliant when he’s been introduced.
“We’ve seen him in the Champions League make a big impact, but he hasn’t played enough minutes, for me. It’d be half taking a gamble.
“I’m not saying he’s not worth taking a gamble, but he’s not the sort of player that I think would fit the bill for Villa.
“Not for me, and I certainly wouldn’t even recommend to the club that they bought Origi – he’s not my sort of player.”
Do you agree with Hendrie?
Yes, we don't need Origi
No, he would be a great signing
TIF Thoughts on Origi…
The Belgian is still only 25, but he has been limited to just two league starts and three Champions League starts this season, and the Reds were thought to have been willing to let him go in the past.
Origi has 29 caps for Belgium and has scored 35 goals for Liverpool in 157 appearances, but it is clear that Hendrie doesn’t think he is the man to help Villa, and with Wesley returning from injury, we don’t think they would need to sign Origi either.
