Cape Town — New Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez has admitted a language barrier between himself and manager Jurgen Klopp has played a part in his difficult start to the club.
The Uruguayan international has found the back of the net just twice in all competitions, since completing a £64million transfer from Portuguese giants Benfica during the close season.
In a recent interview with TNT Sports, the 23-year-old striker said his confidence has taken a knock, but was getting support from his manager.
“The truth is, I honestly don’t understand anything when he talks in lectures,” said Nunez.
“Of course, I ask my teammates to see what he said, but I think he is very clear about his style of play. He asks us to do the simple things, not to be afraid to play games, to have confidence.
“Sometimes I feel a little indecisive, I don’t feel completely confident. But as time goes on, it gets better.
“The coach always gives me confidence. The goals will come. It’s like ketchup, when it comes out a little, it all comes out.”
