Liverpool fans are livid after it was suggested Divock Origi will not be leaving Anfield this summer.
Origi has become somewhat of a club hero for the Reds since signing for them in 2014. During their run to the Champions League trophy in 2019, in particular, he played a vital role, scoring twice in the semi-final second leg aginst Barcelona as Liverpool turned around a 3-0 deficit to win 4-3 on aggregate, while he also netted the second in a 2-0 victory in the final.
However, his influence on the side has waned over the last couple of years, and last term he managed just 17 appearances in all competitions for the club (Transfermarkt).
With just 35 total goals to his name in 157 appearances, he has never been prolific, and even though he does not appear to be part of Jurgen Klopp’s plans moving forward, he will still be at the club next season according to The Athletic reporter Caoimhe O’Neill.
Should Liverpool sell Origi?
The news was shared on Twitter by O’Neill, and it attracted plenty of attention from the supporters. They took to the social media platform to share their thoughts, with one supporter calling the news ‘unbelievable’.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the Origi news below
“neither him nor we fans are happy for this. this is turmoil for every parties involved.”
“I mean what levels of utter incompetence and Mis management means we are still stuck with a player we deemed not good enough when he went on loan in 17/18 season to still be our backup central striker. Unbelievable”
“What’s the point? He just stays on the bench 95% of the time. We should sell him and buy a striker who can get some game time! We desperately need a new striker. Very strange decision if you ask me”
“What’s the point in this? Even at our lowest last season when we couldn’t score goals and the front 3 were woeful, Klopp still wouldn’t give him a game. Just take the hit and get rid of him now, he offers virtually nothing.”
“What a joke of a club. He is offering nothing. He had his moment in the cl final. Time to cash in.”
