Darwin Nunez can ‘learn’ from Miguel Almiron
Former Newcastle United man John Barnes believes Darwin Nunez can learn from Miguel Almiron’s transformation at Newcastle. Nunez moved to Anfield in a big-money transfer this summer but hasn’t registered the goals tally many tipped he would reach - and Barnes believes replicating Almiron’s transformation could help the Uruguayan.
Barnes told Bonus Code Bets: “Well once again, similar to Darwin Nunez, when Miguel Almiron was missing chances and not playing well, the fans stuck with him, the players stuck with him.
"The team started to play well and now you can see, the goal he scored against Leicester, he had the composure. Before, he was missing those chances.
“I think Nunez can look at that situation and say that he’s been through something similar and with the right support, because Almiron is a good player, as is Darwin Nunez, you can gain more confidence.
“When you’re giving a hundred percent, the players, the manager and the fans keep supporting you, that’s what’s happened to Almiron.”
