Exclusive: Paul Stewart tells Divock Origi to leave Liverpool to find first-team football

Divock Origi has scored some of Liverpool’s most crucial goals in recent seasons, but former Red Paul Stewart believes he should move on this summer.

‘That’ Merseyside derby winner, a brace against Barcelona in the semis and a clincher against Spurs in the Champions League final are just a few of crucial strikes from the Belgian in recent years.

Should Liverpool sign Kessie?

Yes, definitely!

Yes, definitely!

No way!

No way!

However, whilst he has already written his name into Liverpool folklore, he’s never been able to dislodge Firmino as the Reds’ first-choice striker, and has been forced to watch from the bench for the majority of his six seasons at Anfield.

Origi, who’s scored 35 goals for the Merseysiders, didn’t play a single minute in their final 13 Premier League games and oversaw only 536 minutes of action across all competitions, with his only goal coming against Lincoln in the Carabao Cup.

In what year did Steven Gerrard make his Liverpool debut?

With less than 12 months now remaining on his Red contract, a summer exit is almost certain, and Stewart told Football FanCast that the time is right for the 26-year-old to depart:

“I’d want to go if I was him. He has scored some important goals, but he’s been sat on the bench for years, so he needs to see if he’s got the ability to go and play at the highest level.

“I think it’s long overdue that he finds a club to play week in week out and challenge himself and say, ‘I can play at this level.’ “
