A number of Liverpool supporters have bemoaned an update on Divock Origi, as he allegedly only has six months remaining on his current deal.
The Belgian is an undoubted Reds legend, despite not always being a regular starter during his time at the club.
Origi has produced some of the most iconic moments of Jurgen Klopp’s reign, famously scoring twice against Barcelona in the Champions League in 2019, not to mention netting in the final win over Tottenham in the same year and of course bagging that infamous winner against Everton at Anfield.
The 26-year-old has also been hugely influential in this season’s title race, most recently against Wolves earlier this month, but according to the Mirror‘s David Maddock [via Anfield Watch on Twitter], his contract expires next summer.
It is an update that seems to have taken some by surprise given that he signed a new deal in 2019, but Transfermarkt’s data also seems to support Maddock’s claim, noting his deal is to 2022 but with a performance-based option.

These Liverpool fans reacted negatively to the update on Twitter.
“He deserves at least another 3 years“
“Really??? Thought it was like 2023 or 2024?“
“Christ I thought he signed a five year deal after the CL final“
“Renew it please“
“Awww come on we’re suffering enough now without more bad news“
