On Saturday, the Liverpool players won the first trophy of the season with a 3:1 victory over Manchester City in the Community Shield, and the big reinforcement of the “reds” in the current transfer period – Darwin Nunez played an important role in winning the cup.
Team manager Jurgen Klopp was very pleased with his performance.
Nunez scored in the fourth minute of stoppage time from Andrew Roberts’ cross.
“Núñez was good, really good. It is clear that he will be better as time goes by,” Jurgen Klopp said after the match, and then he referred to the criticism that Núñez received in the preparatory period for playing in some of the friendly matches.
“We live in an age where everyone can judge you at first glance. It doesn’t help anyone, but it happens all the time. At the beginning of the preparatory period, he was nowhere near the required level of physical fitness. We often sent him balls, and he was completely exhausted in those moments after the third. It’s funny that we have to hear such comments, but he reacted brilliantly to those stories. We are patient when it comes to Darwin and we are aware that he can achieve very well in our team”, said the German expert.
