Divock Origi’s most memorable moments from his incredible 8-year Liverpool career

AC Milan yesterday confirmed the official signing of Liverpool’s Divock Origi on a free transfer.

The Liverpool fan-favourite became something of a cult hero during his time at Anfield, thanks to some incredibly memorable moments.

He joined in the summer of 2014 as a 20-year-old, scoring 41 times in 175 games and leaves after winning every trophy available to him at club level.

In fitting fashion, we look back at his best moments in a Liverpool shirt.

Did someone say “corner taken quickly?”

Barcelona at Anfield

Having lost 3-0 away at the Nou Camp in the 2018/19 Champions League semi-final first leg against Barcelona, Liverpool had it all to do at Anfield.

Jordan Henderson’s early effort was saved by Marc-Andre ter Stegen, but Origi was in the right place to open the scoring.

After two goals from an inspired Georginio Wijnaldum drew the game level, quick thinking from a Trent Alexander-Arnold corner led to Origi finishing smartly after Barcelona switched off from a corner.

The phrase ‘corner taken quickly’ is now synonymous with Liverpool fans and it stands out as a famous moment for the club. We don’t need any excuse to see this clip again…

Champions League victory

After a miraculous comeback against Barcelona, fellow Premier League side Tottenham stood in the way of glory in Madrid.

Mohamed Salah’s early penalty was a nerve settler for the Reds but as the game drew on, fans became more nervous with only a solitary goal in the game.

Enter Origi; the Belgian forward fired in a brilliant and powerful weak foot finish in the 87th minute to remove all doubt as Liverpool won a sixth Champions League, cementing his place in the Kop’s folklore.

A player like no other.

Derby Day celebrations

This was certainly one of the more goals you are ever likely to see, but it was responsible for a dramatic derby day win for the Reds.

With Everton producing one of the best away performances at Anfield for years, the game was on course to end in an uninspiring goalless draw.

However, deep into added time, Jordan Pickford looked uncomfortable after a Virgil van Dijk shot sliced into the air and began swirling around.

The ball landed on top of the bar, with Pickford not covering himself in any glory, before being turned in on the line by Origi.

Perhaps the most dramatic Merseyside-derby goal ever, it was truly a moment of madness.

Who could forget Jurgen Klopp storming the pitch to celebrate with goalkeeper Alisson and Jamie Carragher’s commentary on Sky Sports!

Hero at Wolves

With Liverpool chasing down a seemingly runaway Manchester City, they travelled to Wolves knowing only a win would keep the title race going.

After a frustrating game, he scored a late winner after receiving Mohamed Salah‘s cut-back, swivelling and finishing all in one motion.

That goal sparked a resurgence in the title race, as Liverpool caught up with City to drag the race into the very last game.

If Liverpool had won the title, it would have been seen as a famous goal in the title race, but nevertheless, it was still another brilliant moment for the collection.
