Liverpool’s summer signing, Darwin Nunez has revealed the warning he got from his compatriot and former Reds striker, Luis Suarez.
He said the former Barcelona ace had contacted him and offered words of advice following a difficult start to his Liverpool career.
Nunez was signed from Benfica in the summer and has endured a rollercoaster first few weeks at Anfield.
Nunez’s first home game for the Reds ended in disaster after the Uruguayan was red-carded for a headbutt on Crystal Palace’s Joachim Andersen and was banned for three whole games.
Suarez himself suffered a lot of controversies during his time at Liverpool.
Nunez told ESPN: “Luis told me that these things in the Premier are going to happen in all the games, that they are going to come looking for me, that they are going to hit me, and that I must become strong and I must not repeat the shit he sent me.
“‘Listen to an asshole like me’ he told me. I am very grateful for that message and the love it has for me.”
