Darwin Nunez speaks out about Liverpool's "difficult" start and his confusion about Jurgen Klopp.

Darwin Nunez acknowledged that adjusting to life in Liverpool has been “a little difficult” and explained how he is bridging the language gap with Reds manager Jurgen Klopp.

Nunez has struggled to consistently contribute since his reported club-record £85 million deal from Benfica in the summer. It didn’t help that he was suspended for three games after receiving a red card against Crystal Palace in August.

The 23-year-old has yet to score at Anfield, but on Tuesday, when he made his third start in Liverpool’s 2-0 Champions League victory over Rangers at home, he gave his greatest overall performance for the club.

Nunez is certain that the manager’s and his teammates’ support will help him in adjusting to his new surroundings.

“The truth is that it was a little difficult to adapt, but I believe that, as training and games go by, I will adapt little by little,” he said. “I have the support of my team-mates.

“(After the red card) was a very tough time. I was suspended for three games, I know I made a big mistake and now I’m aware that it won’t happen again. I have to calm my nerves during the games, talk less. We all make mistakes and I know it will serve as a learning and an experience.”

Nunez hasn’t scored since following his Community Shield strike against Manchester City with a goal on the Premier League opening weekend at Fulham two months ago.

While concerned about such a dry spell, the forward insists he can draw strength from his performance against Rangers, in which he was repeatedly denied by excellent saves from the visitor’s goalkeeper Allan McGregor.

“I believe that,” said the Uruguay international. “The important thing is to leave my mark on the team, someone who can always contribute by playing well and, if I don’t score, I have to be calm.

“When the first one goes in, more will go in. I’ve been through that (in the past), and it’s a little uncomfortable because, in the end, as forwards we live on goals.

“But I’m calm, the coach has always supported me. My team-mates also support me at all times and I will always try to help the team by scoring goals or, even without a goal, try to help the best I can.”

The striker has explained how Pep Lijnders and Vitor Matos play a crucial part in team briefings because Nunez still struggles with English and Liverpool manager Klopp struggles with Spanish and Portuguese.

Nunez remarked of his friendship with Klopp to TNT Sports Brazil: “Well, we don’t talk much! I don’t know English and he doesn’t know Spanish. Yes, we have a Portuguese translator in Pep (Lijnders), who I understand, and there is also Vitor (Matos), another Portuguese.

“They are the translators when Klopp talks to the group. They sit next to me and explain what I have to do. If they didn’t explain it to me, I’d enter the field with no idea what to do.

“But the relationship with the coach is that he supports me, gives me confidence and I have to repay that on the field.”
