Darwin Nunez makes social media return after deleting Liverpool images on Instagram

Darwin Nunez

Darwin Nunez has posted on his Instagram page for the first time since deleting all Liverpool-related posts from his profile.

Nunez has been heavily criticised in recent weeks for wasting chances in the final third, and has missed the second most big chances (27) in the entire Premier League this season. It has come during a period when teammates Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz have also struggled to convert chances, though.

The forward was in action for the Reds when he came on as a substitute on Sunday afternoon against Tottenham Hotspur where he was caught offside before missing a one-on-one. The Uruguayan has been caught offside 32 times in the Premier League this season, more than any player. There has been talk over his future after an underwhelming second season at Anfield.

Nunez signed from Portuguese giants SL Benfica for an initial £64million, rising to a possible £85m with add-ons. But his recent struggles have led to debate as to whether this could be his final season at the club after he chose to delete all photos of him in action for Liverpool from his Instagram account, apart from one.

The only post he kept was an image of himself at the AXA Training Centre a day after signing for the club in 2022. All pictures from his time at Benfica remain, as well as those of him representing his country.

Nunez has now posted new pictures of him with family and friends in Disneyland. One of the people pictured is Barcelona and Uruguay teammate Ronald Araujo.

The caption, written in Spanish, translates to: "Days off with family and friends."

Speaking about Nunez recently, Jurgen Klopp said: "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.

"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."
