It’s ‘127.1 billion’, but only 5 goals… “I don’t think I’m doing well”

Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez (23) wants to improve his game.

British media ‘Daily Mail’ said on the 2nd (Korean time), “Núñez admitted that he is struggling to adapt to his first season in the English Premier League. I hope that Luis Suarez, the fan favorite, will explode.” .

The Liverpool club announced in June of last year, “We have completed the recruitment of Núñez from Benfica. We have completed the medical test at the AXA Training Center and have succeeded in signing a long-term contract. The number is 27.”

The transfer fee is 64 million pounds (approximately 95.8 billion won). It is a condition that can rise up to 85 million pounds (approximately 127.1 billion won). This is a testament to how much Liverpool hopes for Nuñez. 토토사이트

Núñez is a player who fits the modifier ‘Divine’. He scored 26 goals in the regular league alone in the 2021-22 season at Benfica, Portugal, and became the league’s top scorer.

In particular, his performance in the UEFA Champions League drew the attention of coach Jurgen Klopp. Núñez scored six goals in the Champions League last season, two of them in the quarter-final against Liverpool. He scored one goal each in the first and second games.

But Núñez, who joined Liverpool this season in much anticipation, is yet to unleash his potential. He has 10 goals and 3 assists in 25 appearances and 5 goals and 2 assists in 14 Premier League appearances.

“I don’t think I’m doing well. I always want to improve,” Núñez told Sky Sports. “Coach Klopp knows that my strength is speed. “he said.

“Klopp tells me I’m a player with a lot of qualities,” he added.

Núñez’s goal is to be like Suárez, a senior from Uruguay who played so well for Liverpool. “It always helps to talk to Suárez. He is my idol. He is a good role model. I have a better relationship with him in the national team. He always gives me advice,” he said.
