Darwin Nunez doesn’t have the best press after joining Liverpool. Diego Torres of the daily “El Pais” says the club bosses regret the costly transfer.
Nunez hit Anfield Road this summer. Liverpool paid a lot of money to bring him from Benfica. Together with bonuses, the transfer value can reach up to EUR 100 million.
The Uruguayan was severely judged in the media even after pre-season training. Later, the critics silenced for a moment – Nunez scored goals in matches against Manchester City and Fulham.
Now the transfer of the Uruguayan forward is being scrutinized again. There have even been voices that Liverpool feel sorry for him.
– Klopp’s biggest mistake is bringing Nunez. This is the most striking stain in the great history of the Liverpool coach’s decision since joining the club in October 2015 Torres writes.
Liverpool bosses admit after judging with coaches that paying 100 million euros for a Uruguayan was nonsense when you consider his attitude in training and matches – added the journalist.
Liverpool started the season poorly. In six league matches, he only scored nine points. At the inauguration of the Champions League, he lost to Napoli by 1: 4.
