Darwin Nunez, in the opinion of Liverpool’s Thierry Henry, is trying to “overdo it” and needs to improve his composure.
As Jurgen Klopp’s team defeated Napoli 2-0 on Tuesday night in the Champions League, Liverpool’s £85 million summer acquisition scored his sixth goal of the year.
For his performances this year, the 23-year-old has already drawn criticism, and he has been found guilty of letting Liverpool’s easy opportunities slip by.
However, Henry thinks Nunez is headed in the right direction and that the Uruguayan international is making too much of an effort to make a difference.
Henry said to CBS that he believes he needs confidence, and the confidence he mentions is that when you are at a club and feel like you will play week in and week out, you are a little bit colder in front of the goal.
Sometimes he rushes things because he wants to impress the Liverpool fans so badly and wants to do so much. He receives the ball and rushes it rather than controlling it before reversing and scoring cleanly with his right foot.
That was his experience. when you make a big entrance and occasionally overdo it It’s difficult to enter the match after Sadio Mane and you end up going overboard rather than finishing with composure.
When he gets one, things will happen because that is the kind of guy he is. To be fair, not many people are finishers like Robbie Fowler, but Henry believes he has goals in him despite not thinking of himself as a finisher like Robbie Fowler.
He is somewhat more difficult. When you feel like things are bouncing off of him and such, he will occasionally rush a bit like Alexis Sanchez or a young Luis Suarez. However, once you start to master what you’re good at, you can control it better. He also believes he can do that and that it will happen to him.
