Origi signed for Liverpool in the summer of 2014 after an impressive World Cup campaign with Belgium, and spent a season on loan with Lille before making the switch to Anfield in 2015.

The 26-year-old has recognised his own influence to be able to give students the opportunity to succeed at the city’s university.

Origi said: “From a purpose perspective and understanding the position of influence and impact I’m blessed to have, I know the importance of being given an opportunity, while also truly believing in the ability of future generations to achieve greatness.”

Professor Gavin Brown, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education at the University of Liverpool, says he is delighted to be partnering with Origi for the new scholarship.
