It was undoubtedly one of Darwin Nunez’s most remarkable performances in a Liverpool jersey as he scored twice in the final moments against Newcastle. The forward has now discussed the changes he has made that have led to this significant achievement.
Speaking with Uruguayan outlet Sport 890, our Number 9 stated (translated): “I used to spend my time watching [social media] platforms, it had a negative impact on me. They claim to criticize me, but I don’t pay attention to anything. I am silently working, and things are falling into place for me. Let them say what they want, my mindset is strong.
“The manager is the one who determines who plays, and I respect his judgment. I continue to operate quietly. Regardless of the amount of time on the field, I will enter, fulfill my duties, and strive to perform at my best.”
It is fantastic to witness the immense effort put into developing the Uruguayan both as an individual and as a player. Now, he is reaping the rewards of everyone’s hard work.
By distancing himself from social media, it seems that the gaze of the world has somewhat shifted away from the 24-year-old, allowing him to play with less pressure.
The attention will return, but now it will be for the right reasons. As long as Jurgen Klopp’s decisions are trusted by the former Benfica player, we can expect to see an improvement in performances.
We are still in the early stages of the season, with ample time remaining to earn a starting position and convince us further that we have the striker we require. Now is the time to continue working tirelessly.
We all fervently hope that our scoring hero continues to impress and proves all the vocal skeptics wrong.
