Words mean little in this game, these days.

In the world of snap analysis and quick takes – and there are no glass houses here, we are just as guilty sometimes – there is the desire, the necessity, to make the big statement first.

A player doesn't make an immediate impact in a new team, league and culture? Fraud. A youngster breaks through, scores a few goals, and looks sharp? The prodigal son. Terms are thrown around with little meaning: world class, GOAT, legend.

It is the use of the word 'legend' which has stirs most controversy. There is no real definition of what a legend is, but it certainly doesn't necessarily correlate with playing ability. Legendary status is built on moments, on impact, and on emotion.

Divock Origi has won the European Cup with Liverpool. He has played in a European Cup final victory That puts him in fairly elite territory at Liverpool; he is one of just 44 men to do so. He is also one of just 12 Liverpool players to score in one of those finals. That already puts him in the conversation.

Then you factor in his scoring one of the most memorable goals at Anfield in recent history against Everton – he scored from one yard after the ball bounced on the crossbar twice and then Jürgen Klopp hugged Alisson Becker on the centre circle in blue smoke because Everton fans threw a smoke bomb on there because they thought they had secured a point and Origi picked the ball out of the net and ran towards the centre circle because why wouldn't y— and, breathe... his case grows stronger.

Divock Origi celebrates following his team's victory in the UEFA Champions League Final between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano on June 01, 2019 in Madrid, Spain.

*Then* you think about Barcelona, about how he was the man who followed up Jordan Henderson's parried effort, how he was the only sentient being in the stadium apart from Trent Alexander-Arnold who knew Trent Alexander-Arnold was about to put a no-look corner into the box. Three shots in the Champions League, three on target, three goals. That's a 100 percent conversion rate, for anybody wondering.

You also think about how he managed all this despite his Liverpool career nearly being over, and taking on the challenge of regaining a place in the manager's thoughts with hard work and humility.

Liverpool is a club which has never been solely about what happens on the field. It's about the feeling and emotion too.

He will never be Steven Gerrard, Kenny Dalglish or Ian Rush, but for the nights he has given us, and the days spent daydreaming about them since, Divock Origi will always be a Liverpool legend.
