Divock Origi has been getting some American Football tips
The Liverpool ace recently got to drips with some of the biggest stars in the NFL.
And the Belgium ace got up to speed with the goings on across the pond and opened up on his team-mates.
“If there was one player I wouldn’t want to be tackled by, it’d be Dejan Lovren. He’s very aggressive,” Origi said, talking to NFL UK as part of a live tour promoting the four 2017 NFL London Games at Wembley and Twickenham later this year.

Origi, 22, joined Liverpool in 2014 but was sent straight back to Lille on loan for a season.
This season he’s struggled to get into Jurgen Klopp’s side on a regular basis.
He’s scored six Premier League in 29 appearances – with just 10 of those coming from the start.
And Origi thinks Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson are the most comparable players to NFL quarterbacks.

“Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson are the two players most like a quarterback at Liverpool,” he said.
“If there was a wide receiver that’d be me. Pace, strength and finishing skills.”
