‘There’s nothing better’ – Pundit makes bold claims on Darwin Nunez signing Liverpool

Former West Ham United striker Frank McAvennie has claimed Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez will be flying with confidence right now.

The Reds are set to start their season with a trip to Craven Cottage to take on newly promoted Fulham, who won the Championship last season.

Frank McAvennie has insisted Nunez will be a confident man heading into the season kick-off following his debut as a goalscorer for the club.

The Uruguay international came off the bench to score in Liverpool’s 3-1 win over Man City in the FA Community Shield last Saturday.

Benfica’s £85m arrival also netted four goals against RB Leipzig in a pre-season friendly.

Frank McAvennie has backed Nunez and Manchester City summer signing Erling Haaland to succeed in their first seasons. He told Football Insider:

“There’s nothing better than coming in and scoring goals and performing well. Haaland hasn’t scored yet but he hasn’t been bad and he’s had chances. Once he does start taking risks, it’s all about trust.”

Pep Lijnders on Darwin Nunez: “Darwin is the one who in one game can create four chances. In fact, in the last game he had four chances in 30 minutes on his own. Everyone can see what he can offer us . We are delighted to work with him.” #lfc [the athletic]

“Haaland is a confident lad. Nunez is a confident lad, and his confidence is flying now because he scored four goals in one game.”

McAvennie has also backed the Liverpool newcomer to challenge Haaland for the Premier League Golden Boot this season. He added:

“But it all comes down to this weekend, nothing from pre-season matters once this weekend starts and he will be looking to start for sure. He’s an amazing player and could easily beat Haaland this season. I can’t wait to see them fight for the Golden Boot.”

Darwin Nunez will add a new dimension to Liverpool’s attack

Jurgen Klopp hasn’t operated much with a traditional number nine up front during his time at the club.

But the arrival of Darwin Nunez could completely change the dynamics of the football played by the Anfield side in the final third.

📺 Jurgen Klopp on Mo Salah/Erling Haaland: “I don’t think he thinks too often about other players or how often they score. He could do that in May when he’s hopefully 34 or 35 and the other two [Haaland and Nunez] get 32.” 🔴

The Merseyside giants could now be more dangerous and direct when needed thanks to the presence of the Uruguayan hitman up front.

Jurgen Klopp will be very happy that his new signing has already had an immediate impact and hopes to see more.
