With Nunez coming incredibly highly-rated, not to mention as Sadio Mane’s replacement, there will have been a great deal of anticipation building around what the Uruguayan could offer his new club in the Senegalese international’s place.
As far as a pure left-winger is concerned, of course, we replaced our former No.10 with stellar Colombian international Luis Diaz with our new No.27 more of an out-and-out center-forward — something fans have not quite been used to under Jurgen Klopp.
At the very least, the issue does appear to be minor, which should bode well for any potential recovery time required in pre-season.
