After returning from a three-match suspension, the striker is yet to find the back of the net as Liverpool continues to produce inconsistent results.

Against Rangers, the 23-year-old had a number of glorious opportunities to score, but his efforts were constantly thwarted by a determined Allan McGregor in the Rangers goal.

After fluffing his lines on one occasion, Nunez is seen turning back to one of Liverpool's captains, Virgil van Dijk and lamenting

'No quiere entrar hermano,' which loosely translates to 'The ball doesn't want to go in.'

Luckily enough for Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp, his side weren't made to pay for Nunez's missed chances, as goals from Trent Alexander-Arnold and Mohamed Salah gave them a 2-0 victory.

Darwin Nunez reveals he doesn't understand Jurgen Klopp's instructions due to the language barrier

Sports Brief had earlier reported that Liverpool forward Darwin Nunez has hilariously declared that he barely understands the words and instructions that are spoken to him by Jurgen Klopp.

The 23-year-old made a famous switch to Anfield in the summer after a goal-filled 2021/22 campaign with Benfica but has struggled to adapt to the Premier League.

Having found the net against Manchester City in the Community Shield and in Liverpool’s opening day against Fulham, Nunez has struggled in front of goal.
