The Plan was to frustrate Darwin Nunez—Palace player admits



Darwin Nunez should be given 5 match ban—Ex Chelsea player

The idea was to frustrate Darwin Nunez out of the game, Crystal Palace player, Joachim Andersen reveals after ensuring Darwin Nunez got the red card.

The Premier League is a league filled with all sorts of characters and tactics; some funny and others cruel. There is no fair game in the league by any chance.

And it has gotten to the point where in, to make sure an attacker doesn’t get the better of your team, you have to ensure you get into their head to frustrate their focus in the game.

Joachim Andersen realized that, and while speaking afterwards of the incident that saw the player given his marching orders by the referee, Andersen admitted actually wanted to anger the Liverpool mega signing.

“The whole game I sat really close to him, I annoyed him a lot and did well against him,” Anderson said.

The Crystal Palace player went on to reveal the headbutt that award his opponent the red card wasn’t the first time he had done it in the game, revealing Darwin Nunez had headbutted him once during a cross, then a second time which saw the player red carded.

“I think that’s why he was a little bit angry with me. In that situation, he headbutted me, the first one, at a cross, and I told him he shouldn’t do that.

“I was angry with him. Then he did it again which is, for me, really stupid. A clear red card.” He said.

The new signing may have cost his team the Premier League title and a fixture problem as the Liverpool squad faces a growing injury list that has the team short of deadly forwards or finishers.

Liverpool are set to face Manchester United in the games Darwin Nunez is set to miss, and with United looking to escape the relegation zone, Liverpool could yet find themselves in one should they fail to come out with a victory at Old Trafford.

From title chasers, Liverpool find themselves as Relegation battlers.
