Liverpool striker Divock Origi was left “very disappointed” after his loan spell at Wolfsburg worsened.
Origi joined the Bundesliga side on loan in August, scoring five goals in 26 appearances.
But his latest game saw him substituted before half-time after failing to have a shot or create a chance in 42 minutes of the 3-0 defeat to Hoffenheim.
His father and advisor, Mike, admits that the situation has left his son “very disappointed”.
“He was very disappointed after the game,” he told Wolfsburger Allgemeine Zeitung.
“But the coach is the boss, he is subordinated to him. Divock wants to offer himself again in every training session for a starting place. He is not happy with this situation and will push himself again.
“Divock is focused 100% on Wolfsburg and wants to help the club in the relegation battle. Contact with Liverpool and coach Jurgen Klopp has not been around for a while because my son just wants to focus on Wolfsburg.
“Divock came to Wolfsburg to become a better player. And he has become one in my eyes. We will get together after the season with all involved and discuss the further career.”
