Liverpool has tied down Champions League hero Divock Origi to a new long-term contract, the club announced on Wednesday.
The 24-year-old, who signed from Lille in 2014, penned the fresh deal with the Reds to extend his already memorable career on Merseyside.

In an interview with Liverpoolfc.com, Origi expressed his happiness.
“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,” Origi told Liverpoolfc.com.
“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.”
Origi has spent two of his five seasons as a Liverpool player out on loan at Lille and Wolfsburg and left the club as he began last season behind Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Daniel Sturridge in the pecking order for a start up front.
