Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has come out to defend his striker, Darwin Nunez after he received criticism online for his miss in the 4-0 preseason defeat against Manchester United. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, he is not worried about the Uruguayan forward at Liverpool, and he fully expects fans of rival clubs to pick on him whenever he is not playing well.
Klopp added that he also expects Liverpool fans to do the same for Manchester United signings.
His words, “I’m not worried at all,” this, and we all know it.”
“It’s kind of a game or a joke for some people to pick out some situations where a player’s not doing well. That’s only a game from [fans of] other clubs, which is normal.”
“Our fans probably do [the same] with signings of Manchester United. We cannot take this seriously.”
“And actually, what our people — all Liverpool supporters in the whole world — should know is that new players need time and get time.”
“We should be the first ones to delete the fee we paid [from our thinking]. Just delete it — it’s not important.”
“It’s like this with strikers. He missed a chance and then there are some nervous people going, ‘oh my god, he missed a chance’ — I can promise you it will not be the last.”
