Mohamed Sissoko expecting Darwin Nunez to start scoring soon
Darwin Nunez is expected to go gun blazing very soon according to former Liverpool player, Mohamed Sissoko.
Darwin Nunez who scored against Man City in the community shield and also on his premier league debut against Fulham has not been able to find the back of the net since.
Darwin Nunez who was brought in to fill the void left by Sadio Mane is yet to live up to expectations.
“It’s not easy to play in the Premier League. It’s a big difference between the Portuguese league and the Premier League,” Sissoko told Stats Perform.
“If Liverpool spent a lot of money for this player, it’s because he has quality. I’m sure he’s going to score a lot of goals and show his talent, because he has talent.”
Sissoko feels Salah’s team-mates are as much to blame, adding: “It depends on the team also. When you play well, when you score, you make lots of good things, it depends on the team, not one player.
“The team has to play well, and after Mo Salah is going to show his talent.”
When asked about Liverpool’s back line and recent scrutiny of Virgil van Dijk, Sissoko said: “He’s still one of the best defenders in Europe.
“[Just] because he’s not playing well in one game or three games, you can’t say he’s a poor player. He has quality.
“He’s captain of the Netherlands national team, he plays for Liverpool, and he’s shown everyone he’s a good player. He’s a leader also.
“Sometimes in football, [things] happen. Sometimes you play well, sometimes you play not good, but I’m sure after the international break all the team is going to win and [take] Liverpool higher.”
