Liverpool opinion: Handing Divock Origi a new deal marks an incredible comeback

The season of miracles does not seem to have an end for Liverpool. The Reds charted another chapter to an incredible saga as they came back from the dead to defeat Barcelona.

The Reds were down and out after the first leg at the Nou Camp. Liverpool dominated most of the game but Lionel Messi’s brilliance and a bit of luck saw them finish the tie with a 3-0 lead.

However, things turned upside down at Anfield with the Reds running out 4-0 winners and reaching a second consecutive Champions League final.

It was an unforgettable night at Anfield as the Reds demolished Barcelona. They should be favourites to land the Champions League.

Jurgen Klopp has built a mega team but we were stretched on Tuesday as Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino were ruled out with injuries.

Sadio Mane or Xherdan Shaqiri could have been the ones getting the goals but the madness started with Divock Origi firing in the opener in under seven minutes.

The Belgian, a peripheral figure at Anfield since injuring his ankle against Everton a few years ago, got the fourth goal too as we scripted an unlikely comeback.

Origi too scripted his own comeback into the team, and his goal against Everton will not be the only memory we have of him from this season.

Origi set for an extended stay at Anfield

The Mirror reports that Origi rejected a move to Wolves to remain at Anfield, and is now in line for a new contract.

The 24-year-old has proven to be an important player for the team even without the major minutes, as he bagged an important winner against Newcastle last week.

The Belgian did not have a great loan spell at Wolfsburg and all seemed to be lost for Origi.

He did come with a huge reputation after a great season with Lille and an impressive 2014 World Cup, but that injury against Everton hampered his growth.

However, Origi has transformed this season. He has been deployed mostly in the wide positions but has given it his all for the Reds.

The 24-year-old’s physical presence gives us a different outlet to explore and he used that well against the Catalans and against Newcastle too.

The Mirror adds that Jurgen Klopp wants to reward the Belgian for his efforts this season, and this would be an incredible turnaround for the striker.

Origi is still 24 and has his best years ahead of him and could still reach the potential he showed back in 2014.

Giving him the new deal is the least we can do after his crucial goals this season, and there could be a bright future for the Belgian at Anfield in the coming years.

Ditching a corporate job to follow a dream isn’t easy, but when football comes calling, who can say no? Been following the beautiful game since 1998. Liverpool addict, F1 fanatic!

Massey who is the current head of medical services at Liverpool will leave the club on March 1st to take up a position at FIFA.

Having been at the club for almost seven years, Massey has played a key role in the Reds being one of the fittest teams in the league.

O’Driscoll is widely recognized as being one of the best in his field and Arsenal are determined to keep him at the Emirates.

Liverpool are an extremely well-run club both on and off the pitch. Driscoll should relish the ability to work with the Reds without having to worry about politics or unrest.

In Driscoll, Liverpool look to have found an excellent candidate to continue the work of Andrew Massey as the Reds prepare for life without the medical genius.

Christie-Davies will now link-up with the Groen en Zwart at their winter training camp in Malta. He is the third Liverpool player to leave on loan this month following Herbie Kane and Rhian Brewster.

The 22-year-old joined Liverpool from Chelsea and made his debut last month in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals against Aston Villa.

Bernd Storck is the manager of Cercle Brugge, who gained promotion to Belgium’s top-flight last season.

The German coach was previously in charge of Royal Excel Mouscron, where Taiwo Awoniyi spent time on loan last season.

Cercle currently have 13 players on loan at the club. The Welshman’s versatility has seen him perform in midfield, on the wing and upfront for the Liverpool Under-23s this season. This could boost his chances of a starting berth.

Cercle are currently bottom of the Belgian top tier, seven points off their closest rivals Waasland-Beveren after taking just 11 from their opening 21 games.

A versatile forward, Millar is capable of playing both upfront and on the left flank with equal proficiency.
