The 24 year old ,Divock Origi has finally penned down a new deal with the Merseyside club extending his memorable career.

The striker’s place in Liverpool was earned when he scored the second goal in last month’s Champions League final victory over Tottenham Hotspur to secure the club’s sixth European Cup.

The No.27 had also scored twice in the historic semi-final, second-leg comeback against Barcelona at Anfield to book Liverpool’s spot in the Madrid showpiece.

Since agreeing a switch to Liverpool in 2014, before spending a further year on loan with Lille, Origi has scored 28 goals in 98 appearances for the club.

The Belgium international thrived following the arrival of Jürgen Klopp as manager during the 2015-16 campaign as the Reds reached two major cup finals.

He later joined Bundesliga side Wolfsburg on a season-long loan in August 2017 before returning to Anfield ahead of what would prove to be a landmark season.

After his first appearance in 2018-19 , Origi went on to deliver invaluable contributions to Liverpool’s Champions League success and 97-point Premier League campaign.

“[I want] to keep progressing and trying to maximise the potential and talent I have each and every day,” the striker added. “At the end of my career I want to sit back and be proud that I used all of my gifts and talents.

“I think the next years are going to be very special – prime years, maybe – and I’m going to try to use them to the fullest.”
