We knew Rhian was a good player before.
"I always felt comfortable here".
That decision was vindicated as the Belgium worldwide contributed five of the club's most important goals in 2018-19 - two in the Champions League semifinal win against Barcelona, late winners in the Premier League against Everton and Newcastle in addition to his strike against Spurs in the UCL final - despite limited game time. "I became a man here at this club, I signed when I was 19", Origi, 24, said on Liverpool's website.
Nathaniel Clyne opened the scoring for the Reds in the sixth minute of the match before Rhian Brewster - who was part of the 2017 Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup-winning England team - scored a brace late in the first half to make the scoreboard read 3-0.
"We're still young so there's a lot of potential in the group".
"So I just try to focus on that, to be as fit as possible, having fun and expressing myself and helping the team".
Numbers aren't the only thing that make a player valuable or important, but in this case the Belgian's attitude and desire compliment those well.
The Belgium worldwide thrived following the arrival of Jürgen Klopp as manager during the 2015-16 campaign as the Reds reached two major cup finals.
After his first appearance in 2018-19 came in early November, Origi went on to deliver invaluable contributions to Liverpool's Champions League success and 97-point Premier League campaign.
Origi also feels the next few seasons could be his prime years and vowed to make the best use of them by trying to the fullest. "At the end of my career I want to sit back and be proud that I used all of my gifts and talents".
