Divock Origi impresses with great command of Swahili – VIDEO

Liverpool striker Divock Origi impressed with his quintessentially Kenyan Swahili during an interview with BBC Swahili in the UK over the weekend.

The Belgian was on target as Liverpool demolished West Ham 4-0 away on Sunday to keep their hopes for Champions League football next season alive.

Later on, he was asked about Liverpool’s chances and whether he was afraid that Arsenal would dislodge them from top four.

In response, Divock, whose father, Mike Okoth, is a retired Kenyan international player, spoke with impeccable command of Swahili.

The video for the interview was recorded and tweeted by Divock’s cousin, Arnold Origi, Kenya’s first choice international goalkeeper who turns out for Lillestrom in the Norwegian top flight league.

Arnold’s dad, Austin Oduor, is also a retired Kenyan international who skippered Harambee Stars and Gor Mahia during his playing days.
