Liverpool eliminated Barcelona and made it to the Champions League final after overcoming a 3-0 first leg deficit.

Divock Origi scored a brace, which included a goal in the 79th minute, which proved to be the difference in the end between the Reds and the La Liga winners.

The Belgium international got his first start of the season in December and went on to make another appearance in that same month before adding 15 more appearances in this calendar year.

The 24-year-old had an option to leave the Merseyside club last summer.

Borussia Dortmund were believed to be one of the clubs keen on acquiring his services, but no deal took shape and it looks like the player made the right decision to continue with Liverpool.

Origi gave an interview to Het Laatste Nieuws and it was suggested to him that a decision to stay with his current employer was the right choice.

To which he said, “I took it with complete confidence. An emotional decision. Head down, work hard and believe in myself.”

“I knew there would be many opinions – which is normal and whatever it is, I respect. But in the end, I know that if I enjoy myself everything comes up. I just put the team first and you see it. We’re in that final, man!”

With one year left on his contract at Anfield, Het Nieuwsblad reported today that Jurgen Klopp’s side ‘will now make a proposal’ to extend the forward’s stay beyond 2020.
