Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is happy to have his Uruguayan striker Darwin Nunez back.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is happy with Darwin Nunez returning from suspension for the derby against Everton.
The Reds travel to Everton for the Mersey derby, counting for the 6e Premier League day. Their Uruguayan rookie will then make his return to competition after missing three games.
Klopp was the first to welcome this return. “When he received his three game suspension, we saw the schedule and we saw his replay game was the derby. He has learned his lesson and is in very good shape. Seeing how we got through the last two matches, we don’t see it as a bad thing that he’s out”.
“Nunez has learned the lesson”
“We called on him, we tried to give him a little more energy physically and tactically, continued the German coach. He looks really well established, even more than before, but we have to wait until See you tomorrow. He’s really happy he’s not suspended anymore. I slapped him on the neck so he wouldn’t forget.”
Regarding the opposition against the Toffees, Klopp said: “These are complicated games most of the time. It will be a big fight and we can’t ignore it, but you also have to play football. That’s the challenge. Newcastle was perfect preparation because it was super intense and showed us what to expect. If we didn’t know, we’ll know after Wednesday. The last derbies were intense, with a lot of fighting.” .
