Liverpool’s coach Jürgen Klopp surprised the media and the fans in the last few hours during the club’s press conference after the Reds’ 2-1 win against Fulham in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semifinals celebrated in Anfield, when he analyzed the performance delivered by the Uruguayan striker Darwin Nunez against the Cottagers.

The German manager, who showed his happiness for the sensational comeback achieved by his team, was asked by the numbers of Darwin Nunez, who despite having scored 18 goals this season, wasn’t able to score against Fulham after having been one of the best players on the pitch and a crucial asset for the team’s strong performance against their rival.

The Uruguayan striker, who joined the game from the bench, missed numerous goal chances during his presence in the team, and he couldn’t hide his frustration after the game, when the cameras captured him saying in Spanish “Brother, the ball just doesn’t want to go in,” as he walked back to the changing rooms.”

The manager hailed Darwin for an outstanding performance

In this respect, Jürgen Klopp was clear about the striker, and didn’t have any doubt on hailing him for his performance despite not having scored in the game. "I don't know how to explain the Darwin situation. You cannot be more unlucky than him in the finishing situation. He does everything right. He still sets up the goal, that's really special. Super special”, he admitted.
