Here’s why Origi should be named the godfather of Salah and Henderson’s new-born kids

“Corner taken quickly, ORIGIIIII!”


Ask any Liverpool supporter what some of their highlights from last season were, and that goal by Divock Origi from their incredible 4-0 win over Barcelona at Anfield in the semi-final of the Champions League will surely crop up.


The result – as a Liverpool fan would have reminded you for the umpteenth time by now – helped the Reds overturn a three-goal deficit from the first-leg of the tie, as they eventually secured a 4-3 aggregate victory over the Catalan outfit.


But while Origi scored on the pitch that night, it appears that both Mohamed Salah and Jordan Henderson scored off it.


Or at least that’s what some Liverpool fans believe, after it was reported that both Salah and Henderson’s wives gave birth to a daughter and son respectively last Saturday (Feb 8).


Because yes, you guessed it – the births of the two children came exactly nine months and a day after Liverpool’s comeback win over Barcelona.


Coincidence? Probably not.


After all, there’s no better way to expend pent-up adrenaline, is there?


And there’s really ever only going to be one candidate to be the godfather of Baby Henderson and Salah.


The most important question for some Liverpool fans, however, is how the births of the two babies will affect the two players’ form in the English Premier League (EPL) title run-in.


But to those Liverpool fans who worry that Salah and Henderson will not be at the top of their game because of their new-born kids, all we can say is: don’t fret it. Liverpool, who are undefeated in the EPL so far, are going to win the title regardless.


So just relax and join us in extending a hearty congratulations to both Salah and Henderson on the births of their children. And maybe use it as an excuse to re-watch the game for the 7234234th time again?
