Luis Suárez has already sent a telling message to Darwin Núñez as new Liverpool footage emerges

Liverpool striker Darwin Núñez is currently grabbing the headlines, as would the odds. He didn’t make the starting XI against Tottenham, but he certainly made the news.

That would see Núñez follow the path of Luis Suárez. But Liverpool may still be hoping to emulate their compatriot in a different way, bursting into goal form after a promising but apolitical start to life at the club.

Head coach Arne Slot, along with FSG’s head of football Michael Edwards and new sporting director Richard Hughes, will have to decide how much patience to allow the forward. With that in mind, Suárez has previously had some telling comments, while the latest footage perhaps offers an insight into Núñez’s headspace at the moment. Here are two stories on today that you don’t want to miss.

Luis Suárez has already said everything about Darwin Núñez

Suárez and Núñez have overlapped a bit in the Uruguay squad, but the nation hopes the Liverpool forward will eventually take up the mantle. As Liverpool know more than most, these are big shoes to fill.

But Suárez has long trusted his young international teammate. He revealed on Twitch in 2021 (via SportBible) that he once urged Barcelona to make a move for Núñez.
