It’s not often Anfield sees a Penarol fan in attendance, though Darwin Nunez was sure to make the most of the opportunity after Liverpool completed a 1-0 win over league rivals Manchester City.
The Uruguayan raced to the stands after the full-time whistle to hand over his shirt and offer a hug to the young supporter in question – a gesture that evidently meant a great deal.
It’s lovely to see our £64m signing hasn’t forgotten his humble beginnings in Montevido and we’re looking forward to seeing him build off his positive performances of late.
