The Belgium international is loving his time at the club, after being a key part of their UEFA Champions League winning season.

In 2014 Belgium international striker Divock Origi signed for English Premier League club Liverpool.

He was handed a five-year contract after leaving French Ligue 1 side Lille but spent two seasons out on loan.

“The feeling was always that I wanted to stay,” said Origi according to the BBC.

“There is something special going on here.”

He was a key part of the Reds’ UEFA Champions League winning run.

“It’s a story really only football can write,” said Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

“It didn’t really work out at Wolfsburg and, coming back, he was thinking about leaving.”

“But he grew and grew and grew, in training sessions you could see it, and he scored unbelievably important goals,” Klopp added.

“Now he is this wonderful player again so it’s great to have him.”
