Divock Origi has signed a new long-term contract with Liverpool following some impressive performances towards the end of last season. The Belgian had previously been linked with a move away from Anfield but many fans wanted him to stay at the club following his brace against Barcelona during the Champions League semi-final.
He also scored during the Champions League final against Tottenham as well as during dramatic wins against Everton and Newcastle.
“I’m very happy to be able to sign this contract and it gives you a boost at the beginning of the season.
“I always felt comfortable here. I made steps during my career. I say that I became a man here at this club; I signed when I was 19.
“When we had to make the decision I just wanted to speak with the club first and my entourage, but the feeling was always that I wanted to stay and extend my contract.
“[I want] to keep progressing and trying to maximise the potential and talent I have each and every day. 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.”
