Jermaine Defoe says Liverpool star Darwin Nunez was ‘relentless’ in 4-0 win over Bournemouth

Some called him a sh*t Andy Caroll, but Liverpool star Darwin Nunez has made sure that those Cherries’ fans went back home cutting a sorry and embarrassed figure. Two goals at the Vitality in our 4-0 win was a testament to the Uruguayan’s growing confidence. He now has 100 goals across club and country. Top-class from the 24-year-old.

With Mohamed Salah unavailable due to national duties, the Reds stood faced with managing the right flank without the ever-present Mo and also balance out the goal contributions. Diogo Jota started on the right wing with Luis Diaz on the left and Darwin through the middle. Jota and Nunez switched positions often, as the latter finished the game playing as a centre-forward.

Nunez’s two-goal display at the Vitality Stadium showcased his growing confidence and prowess, earning him praise from former Tottenham striker and now-pundit Jermaine Defoe. Ipressed by Nunez’s relentless work rate and sharpness, Defoe commended the Uruguayan’s performance.


Here is what Defoe had to say while on air for Premier League Productions:

“He is one of those players who just keeps on going. Just relentless in his running. He seemed really confident. He is sharp, at the minute. You always know that he is going to get chances,”

Nunez, Nunez, Nunez!

Nunez’s work ethic, defensive contributions, and clinical finishing were obviously, on full display, earning him recognition beyond his goal-scoring prowess. Defoe acknowledged Nunez’s all-around performance, highlighting the Uruguayan’s positive influence on the game.

In the face of online trolling and comparisons to past players, Nunez’s resilience and focus on self-improvement were surely evident on the pitch. As he continues to grow in confidence, Liverpool fans can expect the Uruguayan forward to play a key role in the team’s pursuit of success.

Nunez’s ability to step up in Salah’s absence and deliver a match-winning performance certainly adds depth to Liverpool’s attacking options and bodes well for the team’s ambitions in various competitions.

Not bad for a "flop", eh? Darwin Nunez isn't one.
Not bad for a “flop”, eh?
