Pundit explains the aspect of Nunez’s game that ‘fans of any club will love’

Pat Nevin has explained why Darwin Nunez is ideal for Liverpool after the Uruguayan’s brace helped the Reds win all three points against Southampton on Saturday.

The £64m striker had been ridiculed earlier this season as a huge flop by supporters of other clubs on social media, but the 23-year-old has silenced his doubters in recent weeks with a series of Impressive performances for Jurgen Klopp’s team.

The Uruguayan international, who will play the World Cup in Qatar with his country next week, took his goals against Saints at Anfield very well and is already showing signs of being settled in Merseyside.

“Darwin Núñez tries very hard. There is a lot of talent there, now he is scoring goals. But it’s the pace of work and effort and pursuing lost causes. Any fan of any club will love it. If you are willing to give whatever effort you have for the cause,” he told BBC Sport (via The Boot Room).

“Liverpool needs young players because of the gegenpressing style they have. They need players who have real energy and are willing to use it all the time. He is one of them.

The former Benfica striker now has nine goals and two assists in 18 appearances for the FA Cup winners this term (in all competitions) and is a huge fan favorite at the moment.

His work rate is something that really stands out and with him now adding goals to his game he is one of the first names on Klopp’s team sheet.

The World Cup break will give a lot of our guys a chance to rest and recover before a great second half of the season, but with Nunez in such good form, the break could be a big frustration for him.
