Origi signs new, long-term Liverpool contract
Some positive news out of Melwood today, as the Reds' Champions League hero Divock Origi signed a new long-term contract with the club.
Despite the fact that it had been made abundantly clear from the start that Jurgen Klopp wanted the 24-year old to stay at Anfield, it appeared he was still weighing up his options.
But all doubts have now be assuaged, as the striker signed up and will remain a Liverpool player for the next few years at least.
Upon signing, Origi told Liverpoolfc.com: "I’m very happy to be able to sign this contract and it gives you a boost at the beginning of the season, as well as the end of the season last year. So I’m very happy.
"I always felt comfortable here. I made steps during my career, I say that I became a man here at this club, I signed when I was 19.
"When we had to make the decision I just wanted to speak with the club first and my entourage, but the feeling was always that I wanted to stay and extend my contract.
"It’s an amazing club, we have a good group, the staff are amazing. Even coming into Melwood, the people that work here and everything, you feel there is something special going on here.
"We’re still young so there’s a lot of potential in the group. I’m just having fun in training and on the pitch. Those are all important factors as a player."
