Departing Liverpool striker Origi: It's been an honour

Divock Origi was sorry to miss his final game for Liverpool on Sunday.

The Reds striker missed out on Sunday's final Premier League matchday squad due to an issue picked up ahead of the 3-1 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Origi, though, 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 after the game about his time in L4, the No.27 told “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."

Asked about earning legendary status at Liverpool, he added: “Even that is something you take with you and you're grateful for.

“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."
