Thiago Is Darwin Nunez’s Personal Translator In Liverpool Training, Footage Emerges

Liverpoo fans have noticed Thiago Alcantara translating Jurgen Klopp’s instructions for Darwin Nunez in training. 

Nunez joined the Reds from Benfica last month and is set to be their starting striker next season.

The 23-year-old cost a club-record £85 million and there is a lot of pressure on him to hit the ground running.

Veteran midfielder Thiago understands how important the Uruguay international can be and has made it his mission to help Nunez settle in.

In a viral clip shared to Twitter, Klopp can be seen talking to his squad and he grabs Nunez while motioning towards Thiago.

Later on in the session, Thiago looks to be relaying that message to Nunez and making similar hand movements.

Thiago is a Spain international and spent the early parts of his career at Barcelona. Spanish is the native language of Uruguay and it means the duo will be able to communicate easily.

Social media has reacted to the footage and they love how eager everyone is to get Nunez involved.

One person said: “These two are going to become such good friends. I love this.”

Another tweeted: “Nunez is so willing to learn, you can tell.”

A third put: “Massive respect to Thiago for doing this.”

While someone else added: “Thiago is going to be a fantastic manager after his playing year.”

Nunez struggled in his debut against Manchester United and next game against Crystal Palace, with rival supporters quick to mock the FA and Carabao Cup holders’ new recruit.

What followed was an impressive display against RB Leipzig which saw Nunez score a staggering four goals in 43 minutes.

Klopp was aware of the abuse Nunez had been receiving and addressed his critics at full-time.

“That’s the best way obviously to stop all these discussions,” the 55-year-old stressed.

“We always think that if you pay a lot of money then the players feel no pressure or whatever. They are all completely normal human beings and the first touch is not perfect then all of a sudden.

“This generation of players read social media, which is really not smart, but they do. All of a sudden you get in a rush and these kinds of things.

“He’s a different striker to what we have or what we had, but he’s a really good one.

“That’s of course a perfect night for him.”
