Divock Origi is having a tough debut season at Milan with just two goals scored in 24 appearances and Italian media describe the former Liverpool striker as having had ‘no impact.’



The Belgium international joined the Rossoneri on a free transfer from Liverpool last summer, signing a €4m-a-year contract until June 2026.

He had a rough start at the Stadio Meazza, missing a big part of the pre-season due to an injury he had sustained with the Reds before his transfer. Overall, he has missed eight games due to injuries this season.

Origi scored his first Milan goal against Monza in a 4-1 win at San Siro in October, but in the reverse fixture against the Brianzoli on February 18, he only had one pass right in 64 minutes.

The ex-Liverpool striker has only scored one goal scored every 339 minutes. Only Luis Muriel, Joshua Zirkzee, Christian Gytkjær, Erik Botheim and Andrea Belotti have a worse record this season.

The 27-year-old has only started two games in 2023, against Monza and Inter, but is in line to replace the suspended Olivier Giroud in the upcoming Serie A match against Udinese.

La Gazzetta dello Sport analysed his poor run of form at San Siro, starting from his performance in Monday’s 1-1 draw against Salernitana where he was introduced as a substitute in the second half.

“Minute 90, Origi controlled the ball at the edge of the box but he missed momentum, passing it wide to Ibra who produced a right-footed shot. That was the manifesto of Origi’s match.

“Against Tottenham, he had hit the woodwork and his latest strike dates back to the end of January when he scored a needless goal in a 5-2 loss against Sassuolo. Origi has no impact and has only scored two goals so far.”
