“The jury is out” – Ex-Liverpool superstar delivers dispraising verdict on ‘desperate’ Darwin Nunez
Former Liverpool superstar Dean Saunders remains unconvinced by Liverpool’s record signing Darwin Nunez following his poor display against Manchester City.
Many anticipated that the 23-year-old, who joined from Benfica in the summer, would succeed Sadio Mane, a club star who joined Bayern Munich.
But with four goals in 11 games and a red card against Crystal Palace, the Uruguayan international has failed to win over the crowd.
On October 16, during the Reds’ 1-0 Premier League victory over the Cityzens, Darwin Nunez entered the game in the 72nd minute.
Pundits, however, were very critical of his choices.
His worst moment occurred during a three-on-one attack by the Reds versus City. Nunez made the decision to shoot rather than play in the free and already-scoring Mohamed Salah.
Speaking to TalkSPORT, Saunders was clearly unimpressed by Nunez’s cameo as the former Wales international stated:
“My honest opinion of yesterday, he came on, got through and he’s got to slip the ball to Salah.
“He didn’t even see Salah. Salah has just scored as well, he’s got to give it to him. He shoots because he’s trying to get himself a goal.”
“I know how he feels, he’s desperate to get off the mark at Liverpool. He then goes through at the end and tries to dink the goalkeeper.
“On the plus side, it looks like he can run. That’s my positive. The jury is out. Whether he can fit into the class football Liverpool play, whether he can fit into that. Hopefully he does.”
