Van Dijk awaits decision, loan interest & Newcastle reaction – Latest LFC News

The football world has been reacting to Liverpool’s dramatic comeback against Newcastle. We are here for all of it.


Nunez is man of the moment

He may not have started for Liverpool yet this season, but he has certainly put a marker down to Jurgen Klopp.

The Uruguayan is most definitely in the good books of supporters now, and that extends to his teammates too.

Alisson, who was by far the Reds’ best starter vs. Newcastle, reacted to Nunez’s performance.

The Brazilian told LFC TV: “He has a lot of desire to play more, to be decisive for the team, not as a selfish sort, but he really wants to help the team to make big things, to win games and to win trophies.

“This is the kind of mentality he has because this guy is on fire, and I hope he can keep this performance from now on.”

With a laugh at the end, the goalkeeper provided a very analytical summary of the day…
