Liverpool fans view Benfica's new arrival, Uruguayan striker Darwin Nunez, differently because he is the most expensive player in the club's history. But if anyone knows how to handle such situations, it is German manager Jurgen Klopp.

Salzburg beat English side Liverpool 1-0 in a friendly match where Darwin Nunez started but played only the first 45 minutes. After being substituted at half-time, the Uruguayan did not come on for the second half and at the end of the match the journalists were looking for answers.

Klopp's confidence in Nunez

Jürgen Klopp said: "Darwin was too lonely in the first half. Everyone went down, but Darwin was too isolated and we could only pass the ball to him in the box.

"He had his very good moments and almost scored, but he needs a lot more support around him. You keep other players busy so they can't concentrate on him. Imagine the second half with Darwin in the box. Yes, there was someone missing in the box. We were missing Darwin," Klopp added. Jürgen Klopp's confidence in his players is a reflection of his own sporting success.
