(Video) Darwin Nunez had a message for John Brooks during Liverpool’s win at Newcastle on Sunday

Darwin Nunez seemed to have a message for referee John Brooks in the final few minutes of Liverpool’s 2-1 win at Newcastle on Sunday.

A clip posted to Twitter/X by @Braden_LFC (taken from LFCTV’s match coverage) shows the 24-year-old looking aghast and making a card gesture towards the official, before then shrugging his shoulders.

It’s unclear from the nine-second footage exactly what the Uruguayan was saying, and to what incident he was referring, although it’s evident that it occurred in the 85th minute, at which point in the game he was booked (WhoScored).

Perhaps he was miffed by his harsh yellow card for rolling the ball away in response to Newcastle being awarded a free kick, with Nunez going into Brooks’ notebook while Joelinton got away with several fouls without being cautioned once.

Whatever he may have said, it seems that his English is continuing to progress nicely!

  1. All these EPL referees are crooks and drink that PGMOL Kool Aid.
    Like I said before, Liverpool will have to win every game because they are playing against several teams: opponent, referees and the corrupt EPL.

  2. The standard of refereeing last year was awful, sadly it seems to have fallen further this season!
    PGMOL needs to concentrate on eliminating schoolboy mistakes by the referees instead of issuing apologies and rescinding hastily issued cards! The cards issued so far for time wasting have been ridiculous, far too quick to get them out! Most of the time the issuing of the card takes longer than the play was delayed. “Letting the game flow” is still a euphanism for “Not doing their Job as a referee” Barging a player off the ball is not a fair tackle and NOT part of football! DO the Job or get out!
