Not only the great protagonists mark the fans. Rarely in his time at Liverpool, Belgian Divock Origi will forever be linked to the club’s history for the decisive goals scored during the successful Champions League campaign in 2018/19 and the mobilizing effect of his entry into the field, regardless of the minutes in which he was released. At the end of the contract, the striker’s departure was confirmed this Friday by Jurgen Klopp.
“I hope Div has a special farewell. For me, he will always remain a Liverpool legend. It seems weird with the number of games he has had, but he was a joy to work with. “one of the most important players I’ve had. Wherever he goes he will be 100 per cent successful,” the manager said during Liverpool’s preview against Wolverhampton, Origi’s last game at Anfield.
Signed from Lille after shining at the French emblem and showing arguments in his national team, Origi played a more important role in his first seasons at Liverpool. Although its use dropped after the arrival of Jurgen Klopp and the various stars of the current formidable attack of the Redsthe Belgian resisted at the start and changed the course of several games with his ability to move from the bench, being the “purest” striker in the team.
With six trophies won by Liverpool and the possibility of adding two more – Premier League and Champions League – in the coming weeks, Origi’s future is still unclear. Rumors from Italy point the athlete to AC Milan.
