Nigel Jemson insists that Divock Origi will not be given many chances to show his worth at Liverpool this season despite staying at the club in the summer.
The striker was heavily linked with a departure from the club but he has remained at Anfield.
Does Origi have a future at Liverpool?
That means that the Belgium international is unlikely to be given all that many chances at the club, and is likely to have another season like the 2020/21 campaign.
He said: “So does he just accept being a bit-part player at Liverpool football club? Maybe for a short time you do. It’s the same as what Shaqiri did, he’s managed to get away, he wants to play regular football and being an international, you understand that.
“You look at it for Liverpool, you’ve got Firmino, you’ve got Jota to come in, I’ll think Origi would be the next one in line.
“There will be some opportunities for him, I’m sure, in maybe the League Cup or the FA Cup or coming on in certain games but I can’t see it being on a regular basis.”
