Darwin Nunez Silences Critics With 4 Goals In Liverpool Pre-Season Outing

Darwin Nunez Silences Critics With 4 Goals In Liverpool Pre-Season Outing
By Colman Stanley

Last week he was €75 million flop, today Darwin Nunez looked like he could be worth every penny after a four goal performance for Liverpool in their pre-season win over RB Leipzig.

Nunez opened his Liverpool account with a second-half penalty in the 48th minute, before doubling his tally three minutes later when he raced onto a through ball and slotted nicely into the bottom corner.

His hat-trick came in the 69th minute and may well have been his best finish on the night as he latched onto the cross of Harvey Elliot and side-footed the ball into the net.

On the 90th minute Nunez would bag the fifth for Liverpool and a fourth of his own, and comfortably keep any social media trolls or rival fans at bay for the foreseeable future.

We reported last week on the words of Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, following the disappointing debut of Nunez. Naturally Klopp had brushed off the criticism directed at Nunez, and will be delighted with the Uruguayan's showing this evening.

"I'm not worried at all," said Klopp last week. "The general judgement [on Nunez] is absolutely nil interest [to us]. It will be like this and we all know it.

"It's kind of a game or a joke for some people to pick out some situations where a player's not doing well. That's only a game from [fans of] other clubs, which is normal. Our fans probably do [the same] with signings of Manchester United. We cannot take this seriously.

"The only real important thing is how I judge the situation for the player and I couldn't be more calm -- completely convinced about his potential. And actually, what our people -- all Liverpool supporters in the whole world -- should know is that new players need time and get time.
