Last week, Darwin Nunez was Liverpool’s star player after coming off the bench to score two game-winning goals against Newcastle United.
The Uruguayan was outstanding against the Magpies last week, but Nunez still has a minor issue that needs to be addressed.
Jurgen Klopp doesn’t appear to fully trust him, since he has started every game this season from the bench, which is certain to upset him.
After Nunez’s performance against Newcastle, Clinton Morrison discussed it on Premier League Productions. He believes the 24-year-old will be frustrated with his position in the club, saying that he now appears to be the fifth-choice attacker.
Nunez won’t be happy
Morrison shared his verdict on the striker.
“Of course, it takes time. He will be disappointed that he hasn’t been playing. Let me tell you those two finishes at the weekend were outstanding. That was a reminder to Jurgen Klopp that he’s around. At the moment if you look at it he’s fifth-choice, and he probably wants to be first-choice,” Morrison said.
It is possible to change it.
Nunez might not be content with his current position in the Liverpool team, but he has the power to turn things around.
In fact, if he continues to perform well, Jurgen Klopp won’t have any choice but to include him in his starting XI very soon.
Nunez is in control of his own fate, and if he is up for the task of being Liverpool’s starting attacker, he will likely receive the chance sooner rather than later.
