An Irish Politician Is Getting Called Out For Using Weird Darwin Nunez Analogy

An Irish Politician Is Getting Called Out For Using Weird Darwin Nunez Analogy

Darwin Nunez was a butt of the joke for many earlier in the season, but it's fair to say that such a narrative has switched up in recent times.

Watching the Liverpool striker play, it's clear that he possesses huge potential. He is very unpolished at times, but when it comes together he looks like someone who could be a top class forward. At 23-years old and having grown in consistency in recent weeks, you'd imagine it won't be too long before he starts to find the back of the net with far more frequency.

Even those who derided Nunez in months gone by have moved in recent times, with his goal likely to lessen such discussions even further.

However, it appears that not everyone got that message.

Irish politician criticised for Darwin Nunez comment

The worlds of sport and politics tend to mix quite a bit, often in unexpected ways.

Politicians love to use weird sporting analogies and apply them to the political sphere, something that often goes down like a lead balloon. There have been countless examples in the past, with Labour TD Ged Nash joining the list earlier today.

He was speaking after the announcement of the Government's new living supports, which he felt clearly didn't go far enough or were being given to the right groups. To get that point across, Irish Examiner journalist Paul Hosford revealed how he threw an odd dig at Darwin Nunez.



You can't help but cringe after seeing comments such as this one, so it has gone down about as well as you would expect.

There were two types of disapproval doing the rounds online. The first were Liverpool fans, who were quick to point out that any criticism of Darwin's Nunez's proficiency in front of goal just didn't make sense.



The second group just found the whole situation too cringey in general. It certainly did seem like an odd attempt from the TD to show that he was 'down with it'.

Darwin Nunez probably didn't need extra motivation from an Irish politician in order to keep improving in the months ahead, but this will be another one to hang on the dressing room wall if it's ever required.
