'We Will See' - Pundit Details Jurgen Klopp's Plans For Darwin Nunez

Former England international Paul Robinson believes fans will soon see what Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has planned for Darwin Nunez.

Nunez joined the Reds from Benfica earlier this summer for a €75 million fee plus €25 million in add-ons, following a successful few seasons in Portugal.

However the forward has faced significant criticism following a couple of poor displays during Liverpool's pre-season.

Robinson, however, has stated Kopites need to trust their manager on Darwin Nunez and believes that he has a plan for him.

“You will see very early on what the manager’s plans are for him,” Robinson told Football Insider.

“Klopp has got a natural ability of seeing a player’s character and seeing what he is capable of and ready for.

“Some players he gives time to and some players he breaks into the side gently."

“The likes of (Luis) Diaz and (Virgil) van Dijk have come straight into the side."

"I cannot think of a January signing having more of an impact than Van Dijk. Both of those players looked like they had been at Liverpool for two or three seasons."

“Klopp has the ability to do that. We will see in the first two games of the season as to what Klopp’s plans are for Nunez.”

One man who agrees with Robinson is Liverpool fullback Andy Robertson. Only recently he urged fans to be patient with the Uruguayan.

“He’s tall! But, look, he has obviously come in, we haven’t been back too long, but we have to let him settle in,” the Scot told the Liverpool Echo. 

“He’s looked good in training and the Brazilian boys and everyone that speaks his language have helped him a lot."

"I don’t think me and him have had many conversations yet, we’ve just kind of smiled at each other, but that will come."

“A fantastic player, we played against him and he made it really difficult for us defenders in the two games and if he puts in performances then he’ll be a really good player for us.”

Liverpool have another pre-season friendly tomorrow against RB Leipzig, and Nunez will be looking top make a major impact.
