Darwin Nunez, Liverpool’s £80 million star, has issued a warning against ‘everyone

Darwin Nunez has been told that if he does not get off to a flying start at Liverpool, he will face criticism from all sides because people “can’t wait to stick their boot in.” The striker joined Liverpool from Benfica in a £65 million deal in June, which could be increased to £80 million with add-ons.

The Uruguayan arrives at Anfield with a superb reputation, having scored 34 goals for the Portuguese giants previous season. However, the Premier League represents a significant step up in quality, which some players have found difficult to adjust to.

Former Reds defender Glen Johnson feels Nunez must get off to the greatest possible start to avoid a backlash from critics who expect him to fail at his new club, adding that he will be under pressure to provide the goals that will make or break Liverpool’s Premier League bid.

“”He’ll undoubtedly have to contribute if Liverpool are to win the league title,” Johnson told GGRecon. “I don’t think he’ll have to be at his greatest best, but he’ll definitely have an influence.”

“Do you know how strikers are?” They thrive on self-assurance. “I feel he will thrive if he can get an early goal or a handful of early goals.” Everyone is eager to get their hands dirty. Everyone else will rejoice if Nunez fails to deliver and Liverpool begins to falter. He has a lot of strain on his shoulders, but everyone does, so he’ll find a way to cope with it. I feel he’ll settle in nicely if he gets an early goal.”

After coming under fire for a below-par performance in his debut against Manchester United in pre-season, which Liverpool lost 4-0, the 23-year-old has already learned how high expectations will be and the load placed on his shoulders. Nunez, on the other hand, answered days later with a magnificent cameo in their 5-0 thrashing of RB Leipzig, putting the Bundesliga team to shame with a four-goal haul after coming on at the half.

Following Nunez’s goal-scoring heroics, Jurgen Klopp discussed Nunez’s “amazing night” as well as how modern forwards deal with the pressure of scoring.

“We usually assume that if you spend a lot of money, the players don’t feel any pressure or anything.”

They are all absolutely regular human beings, and the first touch isn’t flawless at first, then it is,” Klopp said after the game to the club’s official website. “This generation of footballers reads social media, which is stupid, but they do it.” “You suddenly get in a hurry and these types of things.” Obviously, that is the greatest approach to end all of these debates. He’s a different striker than what we have or had, but he’s an excellent one.”
