Liverpool came out of an important victory on Tuesday at the expense of Rangers in the Champions League, and everyone was happy except for Mohamed Salah, who came out of the match, a victim of Uruguayan Darwin Nunez, the most expensive deal in the club’s history, after he missed many of the Egyptian star’s passes during the match.
Salah gave his Uruguayan colleague several chances to score his first goal at Anfield, after he moved to Liverpool in the summer for more than 100 million pounds, but Nunez missed it.
And the Liverpool website wrote after the match: Salah left the field feeling frustrated after passing more than one ball to his Uruguayan colleague, but Darwin did not deal well with it.
He continued: Salah appeared wonderfully in Jurgen Klopp’s new plan, which saw Nunez and Jota push into the attacking depth, which gave the Egyptian star space to play a role similar to Kevin De Bruyne with Manchester, with the space and freedom for him, but his passes to Nunez was met by the latter with wrong decisions, the result kept 2-0 via Trent Alexander-Arnold’s free kick and Mohamed Salah’s penalty.
Stuart Pierce, who played 78 caps for England between the 1980s and 1990s, told TalkSport: “It’s hard to adapt in England, I’m talking about Nunez here, but he has to look to the right and watch Mohamed Salah. He is an example in adapting to the country and the culture as well as Football, he came to England and lived quietly and gained a lot of self-confidence.
He continued: When Henry came to England in the late nineties, he was not good and he struggled a lot to adapt, and today he is the best player the Premier League has seen.
