Some Liverpool fans have gone crazy after club’s boss Jurgen Klopp hailed Divock Origi as a ‘club legend’ recently.
The Belgian has made nine Premier League appearances so far this season, scoring once. That goal came in the Reds’ 4-1 win over Norwich City on the first day of the ongoing league campaign.
In the Champions League, Origi has made two appearances from the bench, playing only 36 minutes of football for Klopp’s side.

Origi joined Liverpool from Lille in the summer of 2014 for a fee of £10million. Since arriving, the Belgian has played 112 times in all competitions for the Anfield-based side and has scored 31 times.
His most remarkable goals for the club came last season. Origi scored a brace in Liverpool’s miraculous 4-0 win over Barcelona in the second leg of the Champions League semi-final. He also scored in the club’s 2-0 win in the Champions League final against Tottenham.
The former Lille man had a loan spell at Bundesliga side Wolfsburg in the 2017-18 season. He played 31 times in the Bundesliga, scoring six times and assisting twice too.
Some other Liverpool fans also hailed Origi as a club legend.
You mean the Liverpool legend who won the UCL.

Origi’s last start for the club came in their 1-1 draw at Manchester United, in which the 24-year-old played one hour.
What do we think?
Origi has already one a lot more than how much it takes to satisfy a £10million value. The three Champions League goals last season have carved out a unique space for him amongst the Liverpool fanbase and he deserves immense respect for that.
