Jurgen Klopp suggested there was a small benefit to be gleaned from Darwin Nunez’s time out away from league football after the Uruguayan was handed his marching orders for a headbutt on Joachim Andersen.
The German noted that the 23-year-old would now be able to enjoy something of a second pre-season getting in better physical shape in order to better handle the rigours of English top-flight football.
It’s a moment the striker will be keen to move on from now, no doubt in part due to the fact that his antics potentially cost us a winning comeback against Patrick Vieira’s well-drilled Crystal Palace outfit.
