Divock Origi is happy to play anywhere Jurgen Klopp needs him to this season, according to LiverpoolFC.com.

The Belgian forward, naturally a striker, has been played out wide by Klopp recently and has performed well in that role.

The 23-year-old, who has featured in eight of Liverpool’s last nine matches, seems to have caught the eye of his manager again.

“It is a squad game and, like I have always said, I try to shine my light whenever I get my opportunity,” Origi said.

“I focus on what I can do to help the team in whatever capacity that is. I just have to stay positive. I know that we have big goals so whatever role I am asked to play, I am happy to do that.

“Of course I am ambitious and I want to play as much as possible but the most important thing is our team and the team goals.

“We have a lot of quality and we just have to focus on the things that we have to do every week to be at our best. In the end those are the things that we can control.

“Of course, we will try to win every game. We know that if we can do that then we can make a chance at the end of the season. We have a very good group here at the club so we just have to try to stay positive and keep on going.

“Starting with every training session we have to be trying to perform to our best, in every match we have to be trying to perform to our best.

“Whatever happens – negative or positive – we just have to keep on going and then at the end of the season we’ll see how things have gone.”

On playing out wide, he added: “I loved that role. Even in the youth teams, I used to play up front and on the wing so I’m comfortable in both positions. People have maybe seen me more up front in the last couple of years but I totally love it on the wing as well.

“I enjoyed linking up with Sadio and Mo [against Watford] but of course they are top players which makes it easier for me and I think it was just about having fun. Being an offensive player, I like it when I have space in front of me. That’s always good and I think we turned in a really good performance that night.”
