Divock Origi could be set to leave Anfield, here’s why he’ll be missed

Divock Origi is one of Liverpool’s longest-serving players, but could he finally be on his way out?

Reports are coming out that he may be headed to Borussia Dortmund. At £12 million, it’d represent a great deal for all involved. It’d be the end of a strange story but one that Liverpool fans will remember fondly.

At first, it looked like a great signing. Coming off the back of a successful World Cup campaign, he had a blend of pace and power that was so promising. Unfortunately, he struggled for game time under Brendan Rodgers.

Despite some good runs of form, the Belgian has failed to hold down a place in Jurgen Klopp’s side.

A horrific tackle from Ramiro Funes Mori could well have been the catalyst for his poor run of form. Since then, he has been in a strange sort of funk. Constantly benched and a sub-par option, he has been a strange fixture in this Liverpool team.

If he leaves for Dortmund however, he’ll be fondly remembered. He’s not the best player to have played at Anfield, but he certainly has some of the best moments. The goal against Everton, where if you watch his celebration, you’ll see he hasn’t realised he’s scored the winning goal.

Then, of course, there are the Champions League memories. What a man.

Without Divock Origi, Liverpool are still sitting on five Champions League titles. The phrase, ‘corner taken quickly’ wouldn’t be one of the favourites for any Reds fan. Then, of course, there was the finish to confirm Liverpool’s Champions League victory.

Pulling away from the Spurs defence, he unleashed a sweet left-footed strike into the opposite corner of Hugo Lloris’ goal.

Since then, however, the truth has become more and more palatable. Divock Origi simply isn’t good enough for this Liverpool team. Too often, his technical ability, as well as his work-rate, have let him down. However, if he does leave, it won’t be his lack of goals that will be remembered. Instead, it’ll be for those glorious nights at Anfield and the Metropolitano that will live long in the memory.
