According to Kostas Tsimikas, Uruguayan player Darwin Nunez is a goal machine and everyone in the Red camp is confident that the striker will thrive.
What did Tsimikas say about Darwin Nunez?
Liverpool invested heavily in Darwin Nunez when they took him away from Benfica in a £64m ($72m) deal and the Uruguayan striker endured a test start to life at Anfield as questions were asked of him during pre-season and a red card was collected in his first Premier League on home soil. The Liverpool manager admitted that the South American frontman feels a bit at home, but a game-winning goal against West Ham has taken him to five for the season and three in his last four appearances in all competitions.
The Reds are confident that the Uruguayan international will live up to expectations, and the Liverpool left-back says of a talented team-mate that Darwin Nunez is always there. According to Kostas Tsimikas, Nunez can score with his left, right, head, he is a goal machine. He needs confidence, it’s coming and Kostas is hoping he’ll score a lot more goals for Darwin and give them more wins because he’s a very, very important player to them.
Tsimikas is very happy for him because he knows he wants to score. Greek player says that obviously Darwin Nunez will score more, but Kostas hopes he will keep his energy and goals for the next games.
A little about Darwin Nunez
Darwin’s effort against the Hammers was his first at Anfield, with another all-round performance – prior to being substituted as no risks were taken on his fitness – hinting at more to come from a player who brings Merseyside the same levels of attitude and goal threat , as once fellow countryman Uruguayan footballer Luis Suarez.
Darwin’s header, which is his second goal in his last two Premier League starts, was the Reds’ 100th against the Hammers, the fourth side they’ve reached a century against in competition, with no side more (the Red Devils also four).
