Liverpool captain Henderson hoping for special Origi farewell: The big fella deserves nothing less

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is hoping for a special farewell for Divock Origi on Sunday against Wolves.

The Belgian striker will depart the club at the end of the season, with AC Milan the expected destination when his contract expires. Origi has scored some huge goals for the club in his 175 appearances, including a strike in the Champions League final back in 2019. He's also produced big moments in countless games against rivals Everton.

"Wolves gave us one of our toughest games of the season back in December," the Skipper wrote in his match programme notes. "The victory we secured that day was down to the intervention of Divock Origi – how many times have we said that over the last few years? – and without the three points that his goal earned it's possible that everything that's happened since might have turned out differently.

“It looks like [Sunday] will be Divock's last at Anfield for Liverpool so I hope he gets the kind of send-off he deserves. Actually I know that he will because he has been such a special player for us, but he is also an incredible person who has taken this city and its people to his heart.

“His legacy will be his achievements for this club, but it will also be the good causes he has supported, like the local students he is helping to put through university. Today should be a celebration no matter what happens and as club captain I will certainly be celebrating Divock and wishing him all the best for the future.

"The big fella deserves nothing less."
