‘Do him the world of good’ – Pundit explains how Darwin Nunez can return to Liverpool a better player after World Cup

Ashley Williams believes Darwin Nunez has been a “really good signing” for Liverpool and will greatly benefit from spending time with Luis Suarez at the World Cup in Qatar.

The Uruguay international, who featured in his country’s goalless draw with South Korea today, has impressed for Jurgen Klopp’s side since joining from Benfica in the summer.

The 23-year-old initially drew criticism after being sent off on his Anfield debut and struggling to find the back of the net, but he silenced his critics in recent weeks with a string of decent performances.

“Really a good signing,” the former Everton defender told BBC Sport (via Rousing The Kop).

“I think at the beginning of the season people were questioning it a little bit.

“But now you’re starting to see him, he’s grounded, powerful, his confidence is very high, he can shoot left and right, he runs back.

“I think he has a bit of work to do, but starting alongside Suárez should do him a lot of good.”

Núñez started alongside former Liverpool favorite Luis Suárez for today’s South American, but the pair failed to make their mark on the game.

Our former No. 7 is one of the best players to have played for the club in the modern era and our £64m man will no doubt learn a few things from him.

After moving to Merseyside from Lisbon and having to adjust to a new culture and learn a new language, our No. 27 is now starting to hit full steam ahead and has nine goals and two assists in 18 appearances for the FA Cup winners. (in all competitions).

Hopefully he can have a successful tournament, find the back of the net several times in the Middle East and come back in great shape before a great second half of the season for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
