Divock Origi has revealed his 'instinct' told him the right thing to do when he was deciding his future at the end of last season.

The Belgium international extended his contract at Anfield in July after helping Liverpool to Champions League glory, scoring twice in the semi-final and once in the final.

However, committing to the Merseyside club wasn't a tough decision to make for the striker as he only had to listen to his instinct.

"There was a point where I had to sit down and have conversations, both for me and the club, to see where we stand," the 24-year-old, who scored in Liverpool's opening-day win against Norwich on Friday, told Sky Sports News.

"At that point I knew the season was very intense and I had to focus on what I had to do, so I let the people who are representing me have those talks.

"But in the end, my instinct said I had to stay here. It was clear for me.

"The most important thing for me is I feel like we have a very talented group and there's a good energy around this place.

"We still have a lot to play for and everyone here is very hungry. I want to help this team in whichever measure I can."
