Divock Origi delighted with Liverpool contract extension

Liverpool cult hero Divock Origi is thrilled to have signed a new long-term contract at the club and has told supporters he is only just hitting his prime.

Origi scored some vital goals at the end of last season, especially in the Champions League, netting at Anfield against Barcelona and tying up the final against Tottenham.

Origi said: “I'm very happy to be able to sign this contract and it gives you a boost at the beginning of the season, as well as the end of the season last year.

“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.

“It's an amazing club, we have a good group, the staff are amazing. Even coming into Melwood, the people that work here and everything, you feel there is something special going on here."

“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,” he added.
