Alan Shearer has applauded Liverpool striker Divock Origi for his performance against Tottenham Hotspur.
Origi scored the second goal in Liverpool’s 2-0 win over their Premier League rivals in the final of the Champions League.
The Belgium international found the net in the 87th minute of the game, as the Reds went on to win Europe’s premier club competition for the sixth time in the history.
The 24-year-old had also scored the winning goal for Liverpool in 4-0 win over Barcelona at Anfield in Champions League second leg of their semi-final tie, which saw them progress to the finals 4-3 on aggregate.
Former English footballer Alan Shearer who also saw the match, he has praised the former Lille star.
Shearer wrote in The Sun: “And Origi produced an outstanding finish once again. I was at the semi-final against Barcelona at Anfield, and he was immense. To produce another incredible finish in the final is massive credit to his drive and belief.
“But what a two months it has been for him. He has written himself into the history books at Liverpool Football Club.”
Origi has scored two crucial goals for Liverpool this season, but it has to be seen if the Belgium international stays at Anfield after the summer.
It’s most likely that he would be not getting a place in the Liverpool starting lineup, and the striker may search for a new club where they can play regularly.
