Divock Origi has been backed to play a starring role for Liverpool in the coming years by club legend Ian St John.
The 22-year-old has already matched last season’s tally of 10 goals in all competitions, despite starting just 17 of the 38 games he has featured in.
And St John, who scored 118 goals in a distinguished 10-year stint at Anfield, believes Origi has the potential to be a big player for the Reds.
The Scot told Liverpoolfc.com: “He will develop through his training and the coaching at the club, the advice he is getting from the manager downwards, and you can see confidence coming in the lad.
“If everybody is fit he might not be in the team and be first pick, but when there’s injuries it’s great to have him to come on.
“One of these days he is going to be the guy who is going to oust them and be the No.1 man in the team.
“He’s a very interesting player and I think he will become a fan favourite.”
