Departing Origi terms playing for Liverpool an honour

Divock Origi will be leaving Liverpool in the summer with the striker having nothing but good memories during his time at Anfield.

The Belgian missed the club's final game of the season against Wolves on Sunday but was given a guard of honour and special presentation post-match ahead of the usual season-ending Anfield lap of honour, following a stellar seven seasons on Merseyside.

Speaking about his departure, Origi said: “Honestly, I feel honoured. It was an honour to be able to play here in Anfield with teammates, with staff (and) with the fans – it's been an honour.

“You have to experience Liverpool. Before I came here, they told me it's a special club and once you sign here, you experience it. I've been able to see us winning so much – it goes beyond words. It's been an honour."

“I know that I'll come and watch games, for sure. I will follow the club, but it's forever in my heart – it has a special place in my heart. I just wish that the club continues to grow and keep being Liverpool as it is. For sure, I'll be back."

Origi has strongly been linked with a move to Serie A with AC Milan said to be the frontrunners for his signature.
