Divock Origi Says Signing New Liverpool Contract was Down to Instinct

Home » Divock Origi Says Signing New Liverpool Contract was Down to Instinct

The Reds Champions League hero extended his stay at Anfield and he has said it was pure instinct for him signing the new contract.
Origi signed a new deal last month after proving his worth in series of key games for Liverpool towards the end of last season.

He had just one year left on his previous contract but says choosing to stay at Liverpool was the right decision.

“There was a point where I had to sit down and have conversations, both for me and the club, to see where we stand,” the 24-year-old told Sky Sports News.

“At that point I knew the season was very intense and I had to focus on what I had to do, so I let the people who are representing me have those talks.

“But in the end, my instinct said I had to stay here. It was clear for me.

“The most important thing for me is I feel like we have a very talented group and there’s a good energy around this place.

“We still have a lot to play for and everyone here is very hungry. I want to help this team in whichever measure I can.”

The Belgium international scored eight goals in 22 appearances for Liverpool last term and he says a shift in focus was key to breaking through the ranks at Anfield.

“In training I felt I was starting to perform at a higher level and I was enjoying the game,” he added. “There was a point where I had to shift my focus.

“I’m just enjoying my game, going to training every day and being grateful I can be here. I tried to build on it and I got good momentum.”
