Liverpool has informed the 23-year-old that he has to work harder ...

As per ESPN, Luis Garcia claims that Liverpool's new signing, Darwin Nunez, has had a bad start in the preseason.

Nunez stated that he is not concerned about what he will get from the big-money summer signing, but he does need to work harder.

The Liverpool manager's new arrival has a double burden on his shoulders, one being the transfer fee the club paid for his services, and the other is Sadio Mane, who he is re-signing.

Nunez is a completely different player from Mane, and Luis Diaz was also brought to the club in January, so the duo joined and left in the same window, so they will be compared in the same way.

This is what Garcia had to say about the striker while fans of opponents getting their chance in the sunshine by posting clips of Nunezs' pre-season struggles.

Garcia said: "On concerns about Nunez, no, at all." He'll have to work harder because Liverpool plays in a completely different manner than he did at Benfica.

Benfica was playing for him. He was prepared to receive the ball in those spaces and make a quick transition. Hes quick and strong. Hes clever. His awareness and footballing intelligence are outstanding.

After all of this, he has to go back and he has to press. In the two games I have seen him play against Manchester United and Crystal Palace, he has struggled.

He wants to demonstrate that he is capable of playing. Liverpool is putting pressure on Jurgen Klopp, but after three or four runs, he felt tired. It's because he's tired (on why he's struggling). He needs to be physically prepared to play at the level and intensity that Liverpool plays.


Heung-min Son and Mo Salah were the only players to win the Premier League Golden Boot last season.

Salah is still with Nunez at Anfield, but many will be expecting him to compete for the same award next season.

There will be some serious competition for that individual trophy, including Manchester City's new boy, Erling Haaland, who is keen to prove his worth following his summer move to the Premier League.

If Harry Kane stays at Manchester United, there will be a competition for the Golden Boot as well as Cristiano Ronaldo.
