Liverpool include surprise name in Champions League squad

Liverpool have confirmed their 25-man squad for the 2018/19 Champions League group stages – and a surprise name has caught the eye.

Considered by many to be a forgotten man, Divock Origi was included alongside all the regular Liverpool household names.

Last season the Belgian spent the entire season out on loan in Germany, where he represented Bundesliga side Wolfsburg.

Many expected he would move on this summer, and teams including Dortmund and Valencia showed interested in the front man.

But a deal never materialised, and it seemed for everyone that a long and frustrating season was on the cards for Origi.


On Tuesday Jurgen Klopp’s Champions League group stage squad was confirmed, and to many people’s surprise Origi was included.

The reason the inclusion is a surprise is because Lazar Markovic, who is apparently in the same boat as the striker, was left out.

Perhaps the Belgian does have a future at Liverpool after all?

Liverpool’s squad for the Champions League is as follows:

Alisson

Simon Mignolet

Nathaniel Clyne

Virgil van Dijk

Dejan Lovren

Alberto Moreno

Andy Robertson

Joel Matip

Fabinho

Georginio Wijnaldum

James Milner

Naby Keita

Roberto Firmino

Sadio Mane

Jordan Henderson

Adam Lallana

Xherdan Shaqiri

Mohamed Salah

Daniel Sturridge

Divock Origi

Dominic Solanke
