Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that “Liverpool legend” Divock Origi will leave the club this summer.

The Belgian forward is expected to join AC Milan when his contract expires.

Origi has earned cult-hero status since joining Liverpool in 2015 with a string of iconic goals, most notably his comeback-sealing double against Barcelona in the Champions League semi-finals and his stoppage-time winner against Everton in 2019.

But Luis Diaz’s arrival in January has reduced first-team opportunities for Origi.

“I expect Div to get a special farewell. For me, he will always be a Liverpool legend and it has been a joy to work with him,” Klopp said.

“He’s one of the most important players I ever had. Wherever he will go he will be successful, 100 per cent.

“It will be a hard moment when he leaves. He is a Liverpool legend, no doubt.”
