UCL hero Origi signs new Liverpool contract

Divock Origi has become the latest Liverpool player to commit his future to the club by signing a new deal at Anfield.

The 24-year-old, who scored the second goal in the Champions League final as Liverpool won their sixth European Cup, agreed to fresh terms on Wednesday.

“I always felt comfortable here. I made steps during my career. I became a man here at this club, I signed when I was 19,” Origi said on Liverpool’s website.

“We’re still young so there’s a lot of potential in the group. I’m just having fun in training and on the pitch. Those are all important factors as a player.”nike nfl jerseys wholesale cheap

His decision was never going to be financially driven, with the player valuing minutes over money. He rejected the chance to depart Liverpool last summer and in January in order to fight his way back into the manager’s plans.1

That decision was vindicated as the Belgium international contributed five of the club’s most important goals in 2018-19 — two in the Champions League semifinal win against Barcelona, late winners in the Premier League against Everton and Newcastle in addition to his strike against Spurs in the UCL final — despite limited game time.

Origi reported back to Melwood for preseason training on Monday and signalled his desire to play a further part in helping Liverpool win silverware.

Since joining Liverpool in 2014 from Lille on a five-year deal, Origi has scored 28 goals in 98 games for the club and now is set to add to those totals.cheap nike nfl jerseys paypal

He joins Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Jordan Henderson, Joe Gomez, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson who have all renewed their contracts with the club over the past year.

Virgil van Dijk has informed Liverpool he would be happy to sign an extension, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Joel Matip and James Milner are among those expected to be next in line to agree new deals.
