He leaves as a Liverpool legend – Klopp confirms Divock Origi’s departure

Divock Origi is regarded as a cult hero amongst Liverpool fans for his string of iconic goals for the Reds, most notably the UEFA Champions League semi-finals winner against Barcelona in 2019, Newspremises understands.

The Belgian forward has however struggled to seal a starting berth at Anfield behind the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firminho.

The arrival of Luis Diaz from FC Porto in January also cast the 27-year-old Belgian down the pecking order at Liverpool following the Colombian’s superb form since his arrival.

According to a report via Sports Brief, manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed that Origi will leave the club this summer.

“I expect Div to get a special farewell. For me, he will always be a Liverpool legend and it has been a joy to work with him.

“He’s one of the most important players I ever had. Wherever he will go he will be successful, 100 per cent.

“It will be a hard moment when he leaves. He is a Liverpool legend, no doubt,” Klopp said.

The Belgian forward is expected to join AC Milan this summer when his contract expires at the end of the season.
