Liverpool are not going to consider selling Divock Origi after the Belgian proved himself last season, according to ESPN FC.
Not only did Origi score a brace to send his side to the Champions League final but he also scored the goal to settle all nerves in Madrid as the Reds romped their way to a sixth European Cup win.
That came after he scored a 96th winner against eternal rivals Everton which preceded his 9oth minute winner over Newcastle United.
Origi’s status as a Kop icon has come as a bolt out of the blue as he was told last summer that he was free to leave the club if he wanted to but like many Liverpool stars before him, he chose to stay and fight.
Now, ESPN reports that Origi and Liverpool are both comfortable over the future of the striker, with both parties happy to wait to discuss a contract extension.
They claim that if an agreement is not reached, it will not be due to Origi making unrealistic financial as the forward has “never pressured the club into offering him improved proposals, valuing game time, experience and off-pitch stability over his bank balance.”
It’s refreshing to hear that a footballer in the modern era is not obsessed with the money side of the game and it highlights how good the squad harmony at Liverpool is that a squad player isn’t demanding huge amounts of money and is simply happy to be a part of the exciting project.
If the Reds win the Premier League next season, the success of Klopp’s reign as manager cannot be questioned.
