Jurgen Klopp reacts to Nunez’ moment of madness

Jurgen Klopp: Darwin Nunez made his much awaited Anfield debut on Monday. Things, however, did not go as per plan for the forward as he was sent off in the 57th minute for a headbutt on Joachim Andersen.

Here is what Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp had to say on the incident.

On his view on Nunez’s red card…

A little provocation here and there – and definitely the wrong reaction. A clear red card, I cannot deny that. Yeah, he will learn from that. Unfortunately, he has now a few games’ time to do so. That’s not cool for us in our specific situation, even less, but that’s how it is.

On it being the first sending-off for violent conduct of his tenure at Liverpool…

There must be always a first time… it doesn’t make it better.

On whether he will speak to Nunez in the coming days…

Yeah, of course I will speak with him. I came in and I wanted to see the situation. In the game I couldn’t see anything so I didn’t know what happened. I saw Andersen on the floor and Darwin walking away, that was my picture. I asked then our guys already and I saw only, ‘OK, red card’. And then I saw it – yes, it is a red card. Wrong reaction in the situation. Andersen wanted that, I would say, and he got it. But he made a mistake, Darwin, so of course we will talk about it. But not yet.
