Video: 21-year-old Liverpool player interrupts Divock Origi's final message to Reds fans

Curtis Jones interrupted Divock Origi’s farewell message to Liverpool fans during the Reds trophy parade yesterday.

Asked for his final thoughts on his Liverpool career by LFCTV GO, Origi attempted to give a heartfelt answer.

“I feel like my purpose is done,” he began. “How to put it in a good perspective as well, I feel like we’re in good hands, there’s so much still to come from this team.”

That was all the Belgian managed though, because Jones burst in to give his own take on Liverpool’s number 27.

“What a guy man, look at him, big Divock, what a cool guy!” Jones laughed.

Ah well, Origi has always been a man of few words during his Liverpool career anyway.

UEFA MUST STOP! NEW CHAMPIONS LEAGUE COULD RUIN FOOTBALL

Heroes welcomed back to Liverpool

Origi likely wasn’t the only one aboard the Liverpool bus saying his farewell to the fans. Most notably, it looks as though Sadio Mane has played his last game in a red shirt.

Others like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Takumi Minamino and James Milner could also be moving on this summer.

In that respect, it was a fitting goodbye as Liverpool fans came out in their numbers to thank the team.

There had been some worry from the players about how they would be received after losing the Champions League final. Needless to say, those worries were long gone by the time the bus pulled into Liverpool city centre.

The turnout reportedly exceeded half a million people on the city streets.

Liverpool’s decision to stage the parade was an easy one for rival fans to mock after the defeat to Real Madrid in Paris. As it turned out, it was exactly the tonic Liverpool staff, players and fans needed.

This season has been amazing, regardless of the anti-climactic ending. For the players to see just how much their efforts meant to their adoring public should set them up for another push next season.

The pain of defeat in Paris will still be there lingering over the summer. But the parade was perfect to put things into perspective and to say goodbye to one or two heroes.

As for Origi, his place in Liverpool history has long-since been assured. All the best for whatever’s next Divock, you’ll be missed.
