Liverpool urged to sell UCL hero

Liverpool have been urged to sell their 2019 UEFA Champions League hero Divock Origi by a former player, who believes 'doesn't make the squad better.'
 
Jurgen Klopp's side lifted their first Champions League title since the 2004/05 season last Saturday, with Belgian striker Divock Origi the unherald hero within their triumph.
 
The 24-year-old bagged a brace in Liverpool's sensational Champions League comeback against Barcelona and was also on target in the final, scoring the Reds' second against Tottenham.
 
But former Reds defender Steve Nicol reckons he should be moved on and explained why Klopp should heed his advice if they are to build on their recent success.
 
Speaking on ESPN, Nicol said: "For Liverpool's sake, they should get rid of him, let him go, depends on how harsh or nicely you want to put it.
 
"He has to go for his sake but for Liverpool's sake, they've got themselves into a place now where they need to think 'how do we take the next step?'
 
"And for me taking the next step is making the squad better and bigger. I don't feel that Divock Origi makes our squad better.
 
"Whenever he has played, whenever he has come on, generally for Firmino to give him a break, the level has dropped too far in my opinion. That's why ultimately they have to get rid of him.
 
"Now, he's going to be remembered forever and a day, not only for the Champions League goal in the final but obviously for the one against Barcelona and against Everton.
 
"So he will be remembered but unfortunately, as a player, he's just not good enough to be playing at the level Liverpool need to be every time they step on the field."
