Divock Origi Was The Last Player On The Pitch Celebrating Liverpool’s Title Win

Divock Origi Was The Last Player On The Pitch Celebrating Liverpool’s Title Win

Liverpool cult hero Divock Origi was the single last player to leave the pitch during Wednesday night's Premier League title celebrations at Anfield.

But fear not: the great man wasn't trying to hog all the attention like some bit-part players when their team lift a trophy (cough, Jose Bosingwa, Chelsea, 2012).

Instead, long after his teammates had gone to the dressing room to continue their party, the Belgian striker took a solitary moment to stand on the halfway line and admire the Kop, letting everything sink in. After that, he took a slow walk off the pitch to join them.

The special moment, spotted by PA Media's Carl Markham, was a quietly touching period during the wild celebrations. Fireworks, sunglasses, a typically emotional speech from Jurgen Klopp and the whole squad singing You'll Never Walk Alone on the pitch all took place, before Origi took a minute to himself.

The 25-year-old has more than earned his Premier League winners medal, having taken part in 27 league games this season. But most of those have been from the bench, as the forward is firmly behind Sadio Mane, Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino in the pecking order.

Nonetheless, the player has become a hero to Reds' fans due to his - admittedly rather useful - habit of popping up with incredibly vital goals.

Divock Origi Reveals Failed Text Message He Sent Jurgen Klopp After 2018 Champions League Final

published at8 months ago

To date, Origi has scored an injury-time winner against Everton, a double against Barcelona in that 4-0 win at Anfield, the final goal to seal the 2019 Champions League final and a late equaliser in a crazy 5-5 with Arsenal in the Carabao Cup.

He also got two against Everton this season to set up a 5-2 win. The list just goes on.

No wonder fans joke (presumably) about the amount of babies being born in Liverpool now with the first name 'Divock'. In 139 games for LFC, he has 33 goals - but a very high proportion of them have been crucial or memorable.

Origi was probably just recalling all the many outpourings of love he's experienced from the Kop and wishing the fans were there - before he walked off to 'enjoy' a bear hug from Klopp and an ice-cold pint of full-strength Ribena from James Milner.

Get it down you, Divock lad.
