Darwin Nunez deletes nearly all Liverpool images from Instagram account after Tottenham victory

Darwin Nunez of Liverpool

Darwin Nunez has seemingly deleted all Liverpool-related posts from his Instagram account - with the exception of one image.

Nunez has been heavily criticised in recent weeks for his wastefulness in the final third, which coincided with others in the side such as Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz also struggling to convert chances during decisive moments.

Nunez's latest appearance came as a substitute on Sunday afternoon against Tottenham Hotspur, with the Uruguayan first being caught offside before missing a one-on-one. The 24-year-old has now been caught offside 32 times in the Premier League this season, more than any other player, and has missed the second most big chances (27).

There has been talk of late regarding what the future holds for the former Benfica striker following a second season, which has seen little progress made by the club's potential record signing. Liverpool paid an initial £64.1m for Nunez in June 2022, rising to a possible £85m with add-ons.

Whether or not Nunez's latest social media activity is a sign of what's to come remains to be seen, though the forward has chosen to delete all photos of him in action for Liverpool from his Instagram account, apart from one. The only post that has been spared is an image of the Uruguay international pictured at the AXA Training Centre a day after signing for the club in 2022. All pictures from his Benfica days remain, as well as those of Nunez representing his country.

Asked to comment on the struggles of Nunez and Salah in front of goal at the end of April, Klopp told reporters: “It's tricky. Strikers have to go through these things. That's how it is.

"That's a striker's life. A goalkeeper's life is make 500 saves, then one howler - and everybody talks about this. A striker's life is you score all the time, then you don't score for a while and then everybody asks why you don't score.

"It can be the most difficult thing in the world and sometimes it's the easiest thing in the world, depending on what chance you get. We had good chances against Everton but again we were a bit in a rush in finishing them off.

"So create again, create again and try and get in the right positions to finish the situations off. It will be a really rich man or woman who can write that book [on a striker getting back to their best]. You have to go through it. I try to help them speeding it up. That says nothing about the quality of the boys.”
