“I think his time is up” – Frank McAvennie believes Liverpool star has played his last game for the club
Former Liverpool player Frank McAvennie strongly believes Liverpool forward Divock Origi may have played his last game for the club.
Divock Origi’s current contract with Liverpool is set to be due at the end of this summer, and will be expected to leave Anfield on free transfer.
Divock Origi started just 14 appearances across all competitions so far this season, and has started in just five of those games and has fallen down the pecking order in the Anfield attack.
Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino have been preferred down the middle ahead of Origi, while Mo’ Salah is the preferred choice on the right and Takumi Minamino is also an option.
McAvennie explained that Liverpool have important games coming up as they fight for a quadruple, which means Klopp might prefer to use his best players.
The former West Ham United striker told Football Insider:
“He’s had a good run at Liverpool but I think his time is up. He has a good few years left in him at the top level and maybe ohe can find a club where he will play regularly.
“Look at the players ahead of him, Salah, Mane, Firmino, Diaz, Jota, he doesn’t get in ahead of any of them.”
“Every game is so important for Liverpool now, they don’t really have a chance to play him.
“Hopefully he does get a chance to say goodbye to the fans because he has given them so many good memories,” he added.
“It’s a bit mad that he’s going on a free because Liverpool could probably get some money for him,” said McAvennie.
