“We are coming” – watch Jurgen klopp sends message to rival clubs in regards to his new £100m Liverpool sensational signing
Darwin Nunez is a major fan of Jurgen Klopp, who signed him for £100 million (€80 million + €20 million in add-ons) after heaping praise on him this season.
According to ESPN, the Reds have agreed personal terms with Benfica worth over £100 million.
It’s a record-breaking transfer for Liverpool, surpassing the £75 million spent on Virgil van Dijk in 2018, and it demonstrates Klopp’s belief in the 22-year-ability old’s to succeed.
This was demonstrated during the previous campaign, when Klopp’s team faced Benfica twice in the Champions League quarter-finals.
Nunez scored in both legs, and the boss was effusive in his praise ahead of the first match in Portugal.
“He is a good striker! The next one from Uruguay,” Klopp told reporters.
“I don’t know how they play together, Cavani, Suarez and him in one team, that’s probably a challenge to put that in place.
“Top, top boy. And yes, the goals he scored, obviously the one against Ajax in Amsterdam was a massive one, big one, and yes, in the group stage as well. So he’s not shy.
“We expect him to start tomorrow and we have to make sure that he will not get a lot of balls.”
“Extremely good-looking boy, eh? And a decent player as well! Really good, really good, you have to say,” Klopp replied.
“I knew before, of course, but he played pretty much in front of me with his tough battles with Ibou Konate.
“Physically strong, quick, plus calm around his finish, when he finished the goal off he was really calm.
“Good, really, really good. How we say in these situations, if he stays healthy it’s a big career ahead of him.”
