While Darwin Nunez readjusts to life in England, Trent Alexander-Arnold claims that they are communicating through the “language of football” between each other.
As the Uruguayan continues to adjust to life in England during his first season with Liverpool, the defense has discussed the possibility of overcoming linguistic difficulties in order to enhance his bond with Nunez.
Before the Reds came back from two goals down to get a late point at home against Arsenal, the right-back said that he is using a combination of dialects to communicate with the forward. This was spoken before the Reds came back from two goals down to earn a late point.
In the official pre-match programme for Sunday’s game, Alexander-Arnold was quoted by the Echo as saying, “I know a little bit of Spanish from school, so I am able to speak a little bit and he is learning English which is good.” Alexander-comments Arnold’s were made in reference to the fact that he is able to speak a little bit in Spanish because of his schooling.
“We probably speak half of a phrase in English, and then maybe he’ll say in Spanish a term he doesn’t know, and hope that I know what it means, and then we’ll carry on in English,” you might say.
Nunez has showed flashes of becoming a shining light who can rouse supporters even more throughout the 2022/23 season, but the Reds have battled to maintain consistency during the challenging 2022/23 campaign.
The England international acknowledged that it must have been challenging for Nunez to join a club without being able to communicate in the local language, and he stated that it is “amazing” to see how far Nunez has come considering the circumstances.
The young man, who is 24 years old, commented on Nunez’s language skills and stated, “It’s getting there and it’s the same with most of the fellas that come in and don’t speak English.”
The language of football is one that we are fluent in. It is the only thing that matters, and Darwin is an extremely fascinating opponent to compete against.
We are still learning how he plays and how he moves, but it is exciting because he brings a lot to our squad. All of us have fun playing with him, and we are still getting to know him.
After making the switch to Liverpool from Benfica in the offseason of 2017, Nunes has scored 14 goals in his debut season with the club while making 36 appearances.
Although Alexander-Arnold has only contributed four assists across all competitions so far this season, which is a significant drop from the 18 he managed in the previous campaign, Nunez has been responsible for converting fifty percent of those opportunities.
A tally that will almost certainly increase as more time and comprehension are gained.
Darwin Nunez’s Future Hangs in Balance After Liverpool’s ‘Jealousy’ Comments
Darwin Nunez, a striker for Liverpool, has had a difficult first season at Anfield since joining the club from Portuguese powerhouse Benfica. Players in the locker room of the Reds have shared their opinions on the Uruguayan forward.
As soon as Liverpool colleague Thiago Alcantara stated that he was “jealous” of the Uruguayan star, Darwin Nunez’s reputation as “one of the world’s top players” began to spread rapidly around the football community.
The striker made a high-profile transfer from Benfica to Anfield in the summer of 2018, and since then, he has had a season full of ups and downs. In spite of Liverpool’s poor performance in the Premier League so far this season, he has still managed to notch 14 goals in all competitions.
In the race to have the most goals scored for Liverpool this season, Nunez is currently in second place, trailing only the Egyptian phenom Mo Salah. As a result of the striker’s impressive play in his first season with the club, former Liverpool forward Mark Gonzalez believes the player has what it takes to reach the very pinnacle of the sport.
In an interview with ESPN, the Chilean stated the following, which was then relayed by Sport Witness: “It’s not easy to get to the English league, I was there for one season and it’s a thorn in my side because I always said I should have stayed there for another year and I’m sure I would have exploded there.”
It is a matter of adaptation for him [Nunez], as it is for everyone else. Already displaying signs of it today, he is adjusting to the new environment. He is an incredible player, and I believe that he is going to become one of the best players in the world.
“He is obviously an important player for both the national team and Liverpool, and he possesses a great deal of potential. He is only 23, which means that he still has a great deal to do and learn. Imagine what he’ll be able to accomplish at the age of 28 or 30 with what he’s providing now.
Thiago made a joke about how envious he was of Nunez’s physical attributes.
Thiago, a Spanish midfielder, recently provided his feedback on Nunez’s play for this season, which prompted Gonzalez to make his forecast. The former playmaker for Bayern Munich and Barcelona recently геvеаleɗ that he was “jealous” of the Uruguayan’s work rate and running statistics, and he called the feeling “jealousy.”
Thiago made these statements in an interview with Liverpool’s Walk On magazine: “When you are completely immersed in the game, when you are actually living the game, all you can do is respond. You can never give too much thought, yet running is not something I enjoy doing. My issue is getting the team to play slowly or quickly depending on how things are going.
“It is about attempting to score forty goals in a single season for the top players in the world, and I do not have this ability. I tell Darwin [Nunez] that I have never before in my life had the sensation of shooting the ball thirty meters in front of me and declaring that I will win the race to get it.
“It undoubtedly causes me feelings of envy from time to time. But such is life; we never be content with what we have and always desire more.”
The 23-year-old Nunez will be looking to break his goalless streak in the Premier League as he looks to play a role in bringing Liverpool’s stumbling season back on track. Nunez’s goalless streak dates back four matches. On Monday evening, the Reds will take on Leeds United, who are in danger of being relegated, when they travel to play at Elland Road.
