Speaking after the 5-0 victory over Leipzig, Klopp spoke of the impact the performance will have on Nunez.
"We always think that if you pay a lot of money then the players feel no pressure or whatever," he told LFC.
"They are all completely normal human beings and the first touch is not perfect then all of a sudden... This generation of players read social media, which is really not smart, but they do. All of a sudden you get in a rush and these kinds of things.
"That’s the best way obviously to stop all these discussions. He’s a different striker to what we have or what we had, but he’s a really good one."
