Klopp confirms Origi departure: ‘He will always be a Liverpool legend’

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed on Friday that Belgian footballer Divock Origi, out of contract with the club, is leaving for the summer.

“I hope Div has a special farewell. For me, he will always remain a Liverpool legend. It seems weird with the amount 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,” he began by saying, during the pre-game press conference for the final Premier League game, against Wolverhampton.

“He’s a great player, a great boy, everyone in the team loves him. It will be a tough time when he leaves.”

Origi arrived at Liverpool in 2015 from Lille having been far from an undisputed starter at Liverpool in his seven-year association with the club. In 2017/2018, he was even loaned out to Wolfsburg, returning the following season.

The Belgian is, however, linked with several important goals in the club’s history, such as the one he scored in the 2019 Champions League final against Tottenham.

Origi has also won a European Super Cup, Club World Cup, Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup for the red. It remains to be seen if he can win two more titles as Liverpool are still playing in the Premier League this year and still have the Champions League final.
