Jurgen Klopp on why he spent big on Darwin Nunez.
The Reds are currently at Bangkok for their pre-season tour in Asia.
Liverpool signed Nunez for a whopping £85m and has beaten the likes of Manchester City and Newcastle United for his signature.
Jurgen Klopp explains why he chose to sign the Uruguayan international.
“When you prepare Benfica, you know up to the size of shoes – we know absolutely everything about an opponent, so we know exactly about the quality of Darwin,” Jurgen said.
“It was not clear if he would play because he came back from internationals, in the first game that was. It was clear that he was really good. But when you see it then live, it was really impressive.
“The power and the mix-up with technique, the desire, smart moves, the problems he caused us. We fell all in love in these two games. A very aggressive South American, it’s a good thing!
“It was really a joy to watch him and so when we realized we had a good chance to sign him, we were all-in and we’re really happy he’s here now.”
