Darwin Nunez on the ‘incredible atmosphere’ he experienced at Anfield and now can’t wait to call it home

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.
