Darwin Nunez has known Anfield as an opponent but has expressed his enthusiasm to do so as a home player from now on.
Speaking to the club’s website, the 22-year-old said: “I’ve played against Liverpool and seen them in many Champions League games, and that’s my style of play.” There are great players here and I think it will suit my style of play here. Like I said, I watched a lot and it’s a very big club and I hope I can give everything I have to help the team.
“It was a spectacular experience to see what the fans are like in the stadium. It’s an incredible atmosphere. I think Liverpool have absolutely everything – good players and supporters who really help the team at times in the game. So, yeah, I think it’s a really big club and it’s going to be great here.
“As I told you, the atmosphere of this game was absolutely fantastic. Playing against these great players is a great experience for me because it’s something you dream of when you’re little. Playing there was an incredible experience. and at that moment I was like, ‘It must be great to play here.’
“Playing here at Liverpool, a huge team, and now I’m here for real and I’m grateful to the fans and the club for giving me this fantastic opportunity.”
It will be a different experience for our new No.27 the next time he steps out on our own turf as a Liverpool player and when he listens to ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ but as his own anthem.
If we have a good season, it will mean that the Uruguayan has been playing well and he will also experience huge atmospheres throughout the campaign – something we all hope will materialize.
