“I think he’s leaving” – Jamie Carragher convinced that Liverpool forward is ready to secure move away from Anfield

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has stated that he believes Divock Origi is likely to leave the club.

The 44-year-old was speaking on Sky Sports after watching the Reds claim a tough 2-1 away win over Southampton on May 17.

He said (via Rousing The Kop):

“Yeah, I think he’s leaving.”

“He’s one of the players that’s much better coming on from the bench than starting a game.”

“If you see him come on off the bench and judge him for those appearances and what he does, you’d give him a five-year contract.”

Origi has just one year left on his Anfield contract and could leave the club in search of a regular starting spot.

The 27-year-old joined the Reds from Lille in 2014 but the team’s sheer quality in attack has left him struggling to get game time at the club. He has a record of 41 goals and 18 assists in 175 games in all competitions for the Merseyside team.

Origi came on from the bench in the 2-1 win over Southampton, replacing Harvey Elliot in the 65th minute.

Three important points Who is your best player of the match #SOULIVRed?

Jurgen Klopp has appointed a highly rotated team for the trip to St. Mary’s to take on Southampton. The likes of Sadio Mane, Andrew Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold are not even coming off the bench, while Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk are absent through injury.

The home team soon took the lead thanks to Nathan Redmond, but Liverpool equalized thanks to Takumi Minamino in the 27th minute.

Joel Matip’s random header in the second half helped the Reds take all three points to leave leaders Manchester City by exactly one point.

Victory guarantees that the title will be decided on the final day. The defending champions host Aston Villa, while Liverpool host Wolverhampton Wanderers to Anfield.

Despite no game time, Divock Origi made his name into Liverpool folklore with his clutch performance

Divock Origi has struggled with playing time throughout his Anfield career. However, the Belgium international has mastered the art of stepping up when it matters most.

The former Wolfsburg man has a knack for scoring in the biggest games and has contributed to Liverpool’s biggest achievements over the past few years.

Winning the 2019 UEFA Champions League was the first moment in Jurgen Klopp’s reign and it has helped usher in the success of the past three years.

However, the Red Devils won’t have their fateful day if they don’t complete one of the greatest comebacks in recent memory against Barcelona.

Proud of our fighting ability

Liverpool arrived at Anfield after the Blaugrana 3 goals. Origi gave the fans confidence with his early opener and was there to convert on target to put his side through.

He also came on from the bench in the final to score the second goal and secure a place against Tottenham Hotspur. He also had some crunching goals in the Merseyside derby that bears his name.

Origi may not reach the legendary status of Mohamed Salah or have the transformative impact of Virgil van Dijk at Liverpool.

What he does have, however, is a knack for stepping up in the biggest games that ultimately linger long in memory. These performances will ensure that generations of Kopites will always appreciate Origi.
