Divock Origi future plans as liverpool told to let him go
Origi sealed the Reds’ sixth European Cup in Madrid on Saturday night with a clinical low finish that wrapped up a 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur.
Sent on as a substitute at Estadio Metropolitano, the goal was the latest in a series of crucial strikes by the Belgian, who had netted twice in the semi-final comeback against FC Barcelona.
Origi made only cameo appearances for Liverpool last season, but made some incredibly important contributions.
Origi wants to enjoy the emotions of being European champions before looking ahead to next season but admits winning the Premier League will be a target again.
Former Liverpool defender Steve Nicol says the Reds should sell Champions League hero Divock Origi because he doesn’t make the squad better.
Origi, who agreed terms on a move to Liverpool in 2014 and joined the club a year later, was also asked about his long-term future and the prospect of signing a new contract.
The forward is very much in the good books of every Reds supporter on the planet right now, but Nicol reckons he should be moved on.
Speaking on ESPN, Nicol said: “For Liverpool’s sake, they should get rid of him, let him go, depends on how harsh or nicely you want to put it.
Origi says that he will speak with the club and his entourage internally and then in future make public what they decide.
Origi has linked up with the Belgium squad for their upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Kazakhstan and Scotland.
