‘One of the best strikers in the world’, Luis Suarez hails last-gasp Liverpool hero Darwin Nunez

Former Liverpool star Luis Suarez has lauded compatriot Darwin Nunez by calling him ‘one of the best strikers in the world’.

Darwin Nunez marked his return from injury lay-off by scoring a last-gasp winner for Liverpool in Saturday’s 1-0 win over Nottingham Forest. The Uruguayan striker sent his side four points clear at the top of the Premier League.

Following his brace for Inter Miami in their 5-0 win over Orlando City on Saturday, Luis Suarez said compatriot Nunez is one of the best strikers in the world.

Suarez said: “Yes I saw [the goal]. I am so happy for Liverpool and I am so happy for Darwin. He is one of the best strikers in the world today.”

The 24-year-old striker has scored 14 goals and provided 11 assists for Liverpool this season.

Jurgen Klopp also hailed Darwin Nunez for his response to Nottingham Forest’s fans chants against him. As Nunez stepped off the bench in the second half, a section of Forest fans chanted: “You’re just a sxxx Andy Carroll”.

Klopp said: “It’s such an important goal, which gives you three points. It’s always super-decisive and, especially for him, super-deserved.

Before people start singing that song more often, it’s the best way to immediately calm it down.

But they can sing it if Darwin responds like he did today. Before that he had really good moments. (He forced) a sensational save off the goalie, he was immediately in the game.
