Liverpool news: Jurgen Klopp lists Darwin Nunez “strengths” as Man Utd defeat explained

Jurgen Klopp has listed new Liverpool signing Darwin Nunez’s key strength after the Uruguayan played his first game for the club.

Nunez will have been left disappointed following his first game for the Reds, sending a late chance to get on the scoresheet over the bar as Liverpool fell to a humbling 4-0 defeat to their bitter rivals. But it seems his manager was happy with his new signing’s first outing, revealing he’d already displayed one of his biggest strengths in the tie.

The Reds boss also opened up on the result, saying his side had given away “no-brainer” chances to the opposition. And Gary Lineker has praised Liverpool fans for their “remarkable patience” after they were exonerated of any blame by a new report into May’s Champions League final chaos.
