Football Manager icon Adu makes ‘exceptional’ prediction for Nunez at Liverpool

Football manager icon and former prodigy Freddy Adu believes Liverpool forward Darwin Nunez will become an “exceptional player” for the Reds.

Nunez has endured a very mixed start to life under Jurgen Klopp ever since his monumental £85million move from Benfica. Things started very well for him as he bagged the crucial third goal in Liverpool’s 3-1 victory over Manchester City in the Community Shield and followed it up with another strike on his Premier League debut against Fulham.

Despite the fact his record of six goals and three assists in 17 Premier League matches is not a bad return, he has unfortunately been guilty of missing some gilt edged chances at very important moments for the Reds this season. However, Adu has urged Merseyside supporters to be patient with the Uruguayan forward.

“I think the Premier League is a hard league to adjust to,” Adu said to New Jersey Online Sports Betting. “Things that you’re able to do easily or easier in other leagues, are just much more difficult to do in the premier League.

“Sometimes you’re in the right position and you can take your time, but the Premier League is 1000x sped up. You have to adjust to that. I think for Nunez, everything is just moving so fast and he’s rushing at the moment.

“He's rushing, even when he’s in the right position, rushing his shots. I think he just needs that little bit of calm, and let the game slow down for him, and do what he has always done because he is a very good player.

“Some fans may not think it right now, but once Nunez settles in at Liverpool, he’s going to be an exceptional player for them. I think he just needs more time, and it might take until next season until we see the very best of Darwin Nunez, but when it clicks for him he’s going to be outstanding.”

Nunez broke a six match goal drought with a well taken half volley in Liverpool’s 2-0 away victory over Newcastle United, before following it up with a clever goal against Real Madrid. Unfortunately, this strike has been forgotten about, due to the fact Los Blancos went on to blow Liverpool away with a 5-2 victory at Anfield.

Nunez and Klopp’s side as a whole have an opportunity to start their recovery in their clash against Crystal Palace. Liverpool desperately need a victory as they are seven points away from the top four and facing the prospect of a trophiless season without Champions League football next year.
