What Has Tim Sherwood Said About Darwin Nunez?
Former managers of Tottenham and Aston Villa, Sherwood have long admired the talented striker whom he believes could play a crucial role in Liverpool’s pursuit of the Premier League title this season.
“He (Nunez) is back to his best,” said Sherwood. “Causing havoc up there for any defenders. I really like Liverpool and I think they are going to challenge for the Premier League title.
“He is a nuisance. I wouldn’t want to play against him. He is a pest. He runs you in-behind. He can take the ball. He is a good size and backs in.
“He isn’t technically very clean, but sometimes, that’s his biggest asset – I think he is a real threat. I think he is a huge asset to Liverpool now.”
Nunez’s potential was always apparent, with the promise and raw talent evident in his game last season. Patience was key in his development.
It was simply a matter of him gaining a full year of experience in English football before he could truly shine as one of the Premier League’s top forwards, a potential he’s bound to realize in due time.
Liverpool undeniably boast a wealth of goal-scoring ability, a factor that could fuel their pursuit of the Premier League title, keeping them in contention with Manchester City.
