Darwin Nunez should be starting...Former Liverpool forward shares his thoughts on the new season Team

After successfully strengthening its midfielders, Liverpool has completed the restructuring of its midfield at this point, although the possibility of further reinforcements remains. The club is also interested in a left-handed center back, with Chelsea defender Levi Colwill at the top of several players.

It remains to be seen whether the signings will materialize, but the club has the squad to challenge for a top spot in the Premier League. Former Barcelona forward Luis Garcia, who played for Liverpool in the past and has been selected for the Spanish national team, shared his thoughts that Uruguayan striker Darwin Nunez, whom the club signed last summer, should be used as a starter.

“I would have him in the starting XI,”

“I think when Darwin arrived at Liverpool it was a very tough moment for the Liverpool team. In the middle of the park, not working, at the back, not working, at the front so many players missing because of injuries.”

“I think now Darwin Nunez knows how the team works, now he knows what to deal with in the Premier League. With that experience with a team now with Mac Allister, Szoboszlai, Fabinho in the right position, I think that he can give a lot of things to Liverpool.”

“I could see him playing as a first in the line-up. He could be a very good number nine with Luis Diaz and Salah on the wide areas. I think he could be a player who can score more than 15 goals this season, so I would play him.”


Last season, he was criticized in many games for showing up for the decisive moments but not being able to score one-on-one with the goalkeeper. He also failed to keep the ball as a center forward, and his play to make the most of his surroundings was limited, and he seems to be in his best position on the left wing.

He will be competing with Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota for the position, but as for the Portuguese forward, he can also play in the middle, and the Colombian winger is not incapable of playing on the right wing, so they will have to rotate the squad.

The team also has other top-class strikers such as Mohamed Salah and Cody Gakpo, and it will be interesting to see the change in chemistry with the new midfielders and Trent Alexander-Arnold, who has entered a new chapter in his career.

How will coach Jurgen Klopp use Nunez…?
