The 19-year-old joined Liverpool this summer, but was loaned back to Lille for the season, where he has scored three goals in five league appearances.
The manager told ESPN: "I'm happy with Origi's display, he did some very good things. He showed that he's a great striker of the future. If you compare him to [Samuel] Eto'o and [Romelu] Lukaku, there's not a lot of difference."
Lille played to a goalless draw with Everton in the Europa League earlier this week.
