Phil Thompson makes Darwin Nunez and Fernando Torres comparison


Phil Thompson has likened Darwin Nunez to former Liverpool talisman Fernando Torres and predicted 'he will get better

The Uruguayan scored on his Premier League debut in the 2-2 draw at Fulham on Saturday, adding to his Community Shield goal the previous weekend.

And Reds legend Thompson has predicted the 23-year-old will only improve, likening his hunger and desire to please the fans to Spanish striker Torres.

"I’m very excited. We all go on about how well he played for Benfica against Liverpool because he tore us apart," Thompson told the Off The Ball show. “I liken the boy to Torres, when Torres first came to Liverpool.

"The Torres that was hungry, he was passionate, he wanted to learn, he wanted to improve, he ran the channels, he harassed people, he was good in the air. He really wanted it massively, and I see that in this young man.

"He will get better because he looks as though he just wants to please everybody at the moment. But I just think he’s got all of those attributes. Different attributes than what some of our players have got, and I think he will - as with Haaland… the guy is going to score goals and Darwin Nunez will do likewise."
