James Pearce reveals what Liverpool have said to Nunez after Instagram incident

Liverpool Told Nunez to ‘Ignore’ Social Media Criticism

Liverpool forward Darwin Nunez has been heavily criticised during his time at Anfield.


Liverpool forward Darwin Nunez has faced significant criticism throughout the season, and his recent decision to remove certain Instagram posts has left fans puzzled. James Pearce, a reporter for The Athletic, has now disclosed the club’s communication with the 24-year-old regarding his use of social media.

When Liverpool invested a substantial £85 million to acquire the promising Benfica forward Nunez for Anfield, there may have been an anticipation among fans for immediate success. Despite scoring a decent amount of goals, Nunez’s inability to convert some opportunities has become a concern for Jurgen Klopp’s team.

While it’s not uncommon for even the best strikers in football to miss chances – for instance, Erling Haaland has missed more big chances than anyone else in the Premier League – they typically compensate with a high goal-scoring rate.

Liverpool has addressed Nunez’s social media activity in what appears to be a challenging phase for the striker.

Darwin Nunez's Instagram Activity Suggests Liverpool Exit Will Benefit All

Speaking on the Walk On podcast, The Athletic’s Pearce has discussed Liverpool’s advice to Nunez regarding social media, suggesting that he completely disregards any online commentary. Pearce mentioned that Liverpool has repeatedly advised Darwin Nunez to ignore online criticism, emphasizing not to engage with it at all. Particularly during challenging times last season, Nunez was affected by negative comments he encountered online.

After Liverpool’s 4-2 win over Tottenham Hotspur, during which Nunez made a late appearance as a substitute at Anfield, the Uruguayan striker decided to delete some recent Instagram posts related to the Reds. This action might have puzzled some supporters, given the uncertainty surrounding Nunez’s situation despite his contribution to the victory.

Throughout this season, the 24-year-old has faced considerable criticism, primarily due to his high number of missed scoring opportunities. While this is expected for a center-forward, Nunez must deliver more goals to justify his place in Jurgen Klopp’s lineup.

GIVEMESPORT Key Statistic: Darwin Nunez has missed 27 clear goal-scoring opportunities in the Premier League this season, while only managing to score 11 goals for Liverpool.

With Arne Slot expected to join Liverpool after Jurgen Klopp’s departure and considering Trent Alexander-Arnold’s technical abilities, their collaboration could be mutually beneficial.

Italian reporter Fabrizio Romano states that Nunez is currently facing some challenges, but there’s no buzz regarding any potential transfers. Romano, a reliable source, mentions that the ex-Benfica striker is eager to engage in discussions with the incoming manager, Arne Slot. Liverpool has settled on a compensation package with Feyenoord for Slot to succeed Jurgen Klopp after the season concludes. Despite Klopp’s strong support for Nunez, it remains intriguing to observe if the Uruguayan player can thrive under a different coach.
