Van Dijk Says Nunez Must Learn To Maintain His Composure And ‘Regulate Himself’

The 23-year-old Uruguayan, who joined from Benfica in June, received a straight red card in the 57th minute at Anfield for a challenge on Joachim Andersen and will miss the next three games.

The Palace defender disclosed on Tuesday that since the incident, he had been subjected to online abuse and death threats.

He is said to have requested an investigation from the Premier League and the police liaison officer at Palace.

Following the altercation that resulted in Nunez’s ejection, Andersen was issued a booking, and some Liverpool supporters believed he had purposefully provoked the striker.

However, following Darwin Nunez’s dismissal for a careless headbutt during Monday’s 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace, VIRGIL VAN DIJK stated the new Liverpool forward must “manage himself.”

Nunez has the backing of his teammates, but Van Dijk said that he must learn to maintain his composure and regulate himself. That, in my opinion, is a different matter. He must control himself and be aware that these things can happen, particularly in the Premier League.

Wilfried Zaha’s first-half goal was canceled out by Luis Diaz of Colombia after Liverpool was reduced to 10 men.

However, the result meant that Jurgen Klopp’s club, which has just two points after their first two games of the Premier League season, lost more ground.

Henderson, Gomez, and Kostas Tsimikas joined the team as the Liverpool manager quickly reorganized. Later, Fabio Carvalho would make his home debut.

Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino were not present for the match against Palace, and Nunez will now miss the matches against Manchester United, Bournemouth, and Newcastle, leaving Klopp with a lack of attacking options.

Liverpool is already four points behind the defending champions and league leaders, Manchester City, who have been involved in a number of close Premier League battles with Liverpool in previous years.

Van Dijk, a Dutch athlete, disagreed, claiming it was too soon to make predictions with certainty.
