Epic Darwin Nunez Compilation Titled 'I Think We Have a New Penalty Taker' Has Gone Viral
| Last updated
A stunning compilation of Darwin Nunez's career penalties shows his unerring accuracy and calmness from the spot.
There's an air of Jorginho and Bruno Fernandes looking at Nunez's brilliant penalty technique.
The Liverpool new boy has been prolific from the spot during his career, emphatically tucking away penalties for Almeria and Benfica.
Of course, Jurgen Klopp already has a reliable penalty taker in Mohamed Salah not to mention Fabinho who tidily converted some penalties last season.
But the Liverpool boss now has another lethal penalty taker in his squad in Nunez, who's efficient from the spot - evident in footage of his penalties.
Twitter user @CF_Compss shared a clip of the 22-year-old's penalties, accompanied with the caption: "I think we have a new penalty taker."

The Uruguayan's brilliance got Liverpool fans talking online.
One wrote: "Better technique than Salah."
A second tweeted: "He always sends the keepers wrong ways."
A third added: "Salah’s penalties are probably more predictable than Nunez."
Another commented: "Some cracking pens here. Reminds me a bit of Jorginho with his little run up, only a little bit faster."
An ominous sign considering Liverpool won two penalty shootouts last season.
Nunez, who joins the Anfield club in a transfer worth up to £85 million, is excited to begin his Liverpool career and play alongside the likes of Roberto Firmino, Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota and Salah.
"There are some top, top players here with great qualities. There is Firmino, who's a great player; and then Jota, who is another great striker; Luis Diaz, Salah," he told the club's official website.
"To play alongside these 'monsters' is going to be something really special for me because as a kid you dream of going far and I dreamt of being able to play in Europe but I didn't expect to get as far as a great club like Liverpool.
"I can tell you, I'm really enjoying it so far and enjoying being here with my partner. If my partner is happy, I am happier because your family is fundamental.
"So, there'll be a lot of competition between the forwards here but it will be healthy competition. We're all here to help each other out so everything goes well for everybody."
