It’s the dream of every footballer to hear his name sung on the lips of if not fans worldwide, at least the clubside fans. While some overachieve their dream by being loved by the majority regardless of their jersey they don, others achieve their dream of being cheered by their fans while some are infamous for the wrong reasons. It is a fact that a host of names have been and will be swept under the carpet.
One man who has earned plaudits from fans all over the world is Liverpool’s Divock Origi. Unlike the string of names such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Pele, Maradona, Ronaldinho and co who football fans argue about who’s the greatest.

Before coming on, according to the no.27, “Klopp said “go out there and go and be Divock.” He came on and marked his 100th Liverpool substitute appearance in style.
While we expect more shows from the Lord of the late shows, we relish some of his past antics.
