Divock Origi has sent Liverpool fans an emotional seven-word message on Twitter ahead of his impending exit from the club this summer after an excellent seven-year stint on the club. Origi is predicted to hitch Italian champions AC Milan as a free agent in the approaching weeks.
The Belgian joined Liverpool in 2015 after his breakthrough at Lille piqued the interests of Europe’s elite. Origi had an honest begin to life on Merseyside before a lengthy ankle injury, after which he found himself further down the pecking order and went out on loan.
He has only scored 20 goals within the last 4 years at Anfield, but some were of giant importance including strikes against Barcelona and Tottenham that helped Liverpool win the Champions League in 2019. Holding icon status at Anfield for his contributions to the club, he is predicted to hitch AC Milan when his contract expires.
And the player wrote a parting message on Twitter on Monday as he prepares to depart the club where he has won six major trophies including the league and Champions League. “It was a special journey @LFC YNWA,” the Belgian tweeted.
Jurgen Klopp stated back in May that he was set to depart the club after failing to agree a recent contract. And the German stated that he expects the striker ‘to get a special farewell’ upon his exit from the club.
“I expect Div to get a special farewell. For me, he’ll at all times be a Liverpool legend and it has been a joy to work with him,” Klopp said. “He’s probably the most necessary players I ever had. Wherever he’ll go he might be successful, 100 per cent.
“It is going to be a tough moment when he leaves. He’s a Liverpool legend, little question. I don’t desire to see anyone leave but that is life. No-one has come to me and said they need to depart. It is not the time for that now.”
He departs the club expecting to hitch up with Stefano Piolo’s men on the San Siro ahead of the brand new campaign. The Rossoneri won the top-flight last season for the primary time in 11 years. And with Origi joining, they’ll look to retain the Serie A title for the primary time since 1993.
