The Heir to my Dynasty: Luis Suarez sends message to Darwin Nunez
Talk about talent recognizing talent and you look at Luis Suarez having the message to Darwin Nunez after the Community Shield triumph against Manchester City over the weekend.
Luis Suarez, being a former Liverpool hero had quite the message for his compatriot after his debut against Manchester City on Saturday.
The 23 year old striker put in a remarkable performance in his official competitive appearance for the Reds that resulted in the Anfield side emerging as 3-1 winners against title rivals, Manchester City.
Darwin Nunez saw quick movements into the City box that forced goal keeper Ederson to make multiple saves before forcing an error from defender, Ruben Dias to gift the Reds a penalty in the 83rd minute at the King Power Stadium.
The eventual penalty which was scored by Mohamed Salah soon followed a 90th minute sealer from Nunez himself to give a 3-1 score line at Full Time.
After the game, Nunez made some social media posts in reaction to the result, to which Luis Suarez sent a message.
In response to the Uruguay international’s post of: “Give me that shield,” Suarez sent a response saying in Spanish:
“Felicitaciones (Congratulations) @Darwinn99! YNWA @liverpoolfc,” acknowledging his compatriot’s talent and prowess.
Prior to Darwin Nunez’s arrival at Anfield, he has been likened to his countryman, Luis Suarez, but the 35 year old being humble, expressed Nunez has his own story to write without bothering about living to his own legacy.
“He (Nunez) will write his own story at Liverpool. He is Uruguayan and he is a forward but that is where the comparisons stop – he is a special player and doesn’t need to be compared with anybody.
“It was last season that Europe started to take notice of him because of his performances for Benfica – but from an early age I could see there was something special in him. While he was at Almeria I recommended him to Barcelona but it was something that never happened.” Suarez said.
