The £20m player says ‘the big guy’ is leaving Liverpool, he told FSG
Divock Origi, who is leaving Liverpool this summer, appears to have been confirmed by team-mate and captain Jordan Henderson.
The Belgian killer is preparing for his very last game at Anfield on Sunday when the Reds welcome Wolverhampton Wanderers to Merseyside in the final Premier League game of the season.
There has been speculation for months that Origi is leaving Liverpool and the former Lille hitman is said to have told Fenway Sports Group he will not be signing a new contract this summer.
Earlier this week in Italy it was claimed that the 27-year-old should have a medical at AC Milan ahead of an impressive move to San Siro.
Origi was never anywhere near the first name on Jurgen Klopp’s squad list, but by the same token he has produced some memorable and magical moments for Liverpool, including two goals in the Champions League semi-final win over Barcelona in 2019 – and another in the final win over Tottenham Hotspur.
And Henderson the £20m skipperhas confirmed the player’s definitive departure and shared the club’s official program notes.
He said: “It looks like Divock will be the last one at Anfield for Liverpool today so I hope he gets the send-off he deserves. Actually, I know that because he was a very special player for us, but he’s also an incredible person who fell in love with this city and its people.
“Today should be a celebration no matter what and as captain of the club I will certainly celebrate Divock and wish him all the best for the future. The big guy deserves nothing less.”
original, who joined Liverpool for £10m in 2014But she might not get a swan song.
Klopp’s side need to win on Sunday to maximize their chances of winning the Premier League and hope Aston Villa can take at least a point ahead of Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
And therefore it is possible that the German manager does not have the luxury of presenting Origi just to say goodbye.
In an ideal world, Liverpool win 4-0 with 20 minutes to go and Klopp can bring him on, but if it’s a low-key encounter the former Borussia Dortmund boss won’t risk the result to send Origi farewell.
