Darwin Nunez made Liverpool history against Sparta Prague that can never be done again

Darwin Nunez made Liverpool history against Sparta Prague that can never be done again

Darwin Nunez scored as Liverpool take on Sparta Prague in the Europa League.

Darwin Nuenz has made Liverpool history against Sparta Prague which can never be done again.

On Thursday evening, Liverpool travelled to the epet Arena to take to Czech side Sparta Prague in the Europa League round of 16.

With a huge Premier League clash against Manchester City at Anfield coming up on Sunday, many expected Jurgen Klopp to field a slightly weakened side.

However, the likes of Andy Robertson, Alexis Mac Allister, Luis Diaz and Nunez were all named in a strong Liverpool XI.

Liverpool went ahead inside eight minutes thanks to a penalty from Argentine Mac Allister.

After weathering a Sparta Prague storm, Liverpool doubled their lead through Nunez, who made a bit of history with his goal.

The striker took a shot from the edge of the area which sailed over Sparta Prague goalkeeper Peter Jensen.

The Uruguyan’s goal was Liverpool’s 1000th goal in the Klopp era.

It remains to be seen how many more goals Liverpool will score before Klopp departs the club in the summer.

The German shocked the football world back in January when he announced his decision to step down as Liverpool manager at the end of the 23/24 season.

During an emotional interview with the club, Klopp said: "It is that I am, how can I say it, running out of energy. I have no problem now, obviously, I knew it already for longer that I will have to announce it at one point, but I am absolutely fine now. I know that I cannot do the job again and again and again and again."

Liverpool will now be working around the clock in a bid to find their perfect replacement for Klopp.

So far, the likes of Xabi Alonso, Roberto De Zerbi, Julian Nagelsmann, Ruben Amorim and Thomas Frank have all been linked with a move to Anfield.
