Liverpool fans seem to think Divock Origi is 'cursed' for the striker
The decision came just a few days after Barcelona crashed out of the Spanish Super Cup, something that was becoming a trend under Valverde, but some fans think that it was a goal scored eight months ago that made the difference.
Origi scored against Barca in the Champions League
The latest victim of the curse of Divock Origi. He scored three braces in 2019, v Barcelona, Arsenal and Everton. Valverde, Emery and Silva have all since been sacked. https://t.co/SpQJmm6kCM— Richard Jolly (@RichJolly) January 13, 2020
The Belgian striker also scored against Newcastle United last season, and their manager at the time, Rafa Benitez, left his position at St James' Park in June.
On February 27, Origi scored against Watford in a 5-0 Premier League win, and seven months later, Javi Gracia, who was in charge of that 5-0 loss, was sacked following a dismal start to the 2019/20 season.
In June of last year, Origi scored the second goal for Liverpool in their 2-0 win over Tottenham in the Champions League final. Spurs sacked Mauricio Pochettino last November following reports of a divided dressing room.
The Belgium international netted twice against Arsenal - including in the 94th minute - in the Reds' dramatic Carabao Cup victory over the Gunners last October, and less than a month later, Unai Emery was removed from his position in charge.
Everton boss Marco Silva was sacked in early December, one year after Origi capitalised on Jordan Pickford's clanger to seal a 1-0 win in the Merseyside derby.
It's safe to say that no manager is safe when Origi scores, and
