The Belgium striker, who had just one year remaining on his previous deal, scored twice in Liverpool’s famous 4-0 second-leg win over Barcelona in the Champions League semi-finals. Origi also scored the second goal in their Champions League final win against Tottenham, as well as dramatic winners against Newcastle and Everton in the Premier League.

After signing his new deal, Origi told the Liverpool website: “I’m very happy to be able to sign this contract and it gives you a boost at the beginning of the season. “I always felt comfortable here. I made steps during my career. I say that I became a man here at this club; I signed when I was 19.

“When we had to make the decision I just wanted to speak with the club first and my entourage, but the feeling was always that I wanted to stay and extend my contract. “[I want] to keep progressing and trying to maximise the potential and talent I have each and every day. At the end of my career I want to sit back and be proud that I used all of my gifts and talents. “I think the next years are going to be very special – prime years, maybe – and I’m going to try to use them to the fullest.”
