Compilation Of 'Darwin Nunez Making Easy Things Look Impossible' Has Gone Viral

Darwin Nunez continues to be rinsed on social media - this time after a below par display in Liverpool's 1-0 defeat to Red Bull Salzburg on Wednesday night.

19-year-old Benjamin Sesko, heavily linked with Manchester United, scored the only goal of the game at the Red Bull Arena and showed why many of his teammates rate him as highly as Erling Haaland.

But at the opposite end, Liverpool's £85 million record signing Nunez was getting panned on social media by rival fans for his performance.

The Uruguayan failed to find the net in his first two outings for Liverpool against Manchester United and Crystal Palace - notably blazing a simple chance over the bar on his debut.

He was unable to replicate his heroics against a week on against another Red Bull outfit, however, and someone created a compilation mocking him.

Titled, "Darwin Nunez making easy things look impossible", the video is 46 seconds of Nunez's worst bits in 45 minutes against Salzburg.

There are a fair amount of poor touches as well as a few really good chances that the former Benfica man really ought to have done better with.

He played the first half and was substituted for Roberto Firmino at half-time.

Remarkably, the clip has amassed 1.4 million views on Twitter and generated a whole lot of replies and quote-tweets.

It may only be pre-season but Nunez is already becoming a major talking point:

Some Liverpool fans will be quick to point out that Fernando Torres didn't set the world alight in pre-season and will be hoping that Nunez will be able to reach that sort of level at Anfield.

After the Salzburg loss, manager Jurgen Klopp defended his new big-money signing and said he needs help in attack.

Speaking to the official Liverpool website, Klopp said: "But especially the first half, the majority of players have to get used to what we do. Darwin was much too often alone.

"Everybody dropped, everybody was involved in the build-up but too wide and we could only pass the ball to Darwin in the box.

“He had his moments and nearly scored, but he needs much more support around him. You keep other players busy that they cannot focus on him. So many things.

“Second half, imagine now Darwin would have been there in the box, that would have helped as well. It is like it is – doesn’t feel great, but we take it and go from here.”

Next up for Liverpool is the Community Shield against Manchester City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday, before a final friendly against Strasbourg on Sunday.

The FA Cup and Carabao Cup holders begin their new league campaign away to Fulham on 6 August.
