Kenyan goalkeeper Arnold Origi has challenged his cousin Divock Origi to up his game at English Premier League side Liverpool.

Klopp has entrusted him with 13 starts this season where he has scored eight goals, stats he can improve if he works for himself according to the Harambee Stars goalkeeper.

“I know his qualities. Divock has everything you need to be a top striker – pace, power, aggression and finishing. And I’m not saying that just because we’re family. He can also be the first defender with his pressing which is very important in a team like Liverpool.

“I see what he’s capable of. He showed it in the 2014 World Cup for example. That was no fluke. You don’t just go and perform at that level. He can be the best. The only hindrance to him becoming the best is in himself,” he told Liverpool Echo.

Liverpool are currently placed at position five with 49 points on the Premier League table.
