Jurgen Klopp impressed with Nunez’s impact at Liverpool.
The Uruguayan forward has came off the bench in the Community Shield and produced an impressive cameo.
He won the penalty which Mo Salah converted to seal the game 2-1 and also caused Ederson a few problems.
“It was good, it was really good. It is clear it will get better with time,” said Klopp.
“We live in a world where everybody gets judged on first sight and that’s not helpful for anybody but it happens constantly.
“In the first few games (of pre-season) we were not even close to the fitness level of today and then when he came on, we passed each ball for him to chase it and after the third ball he was completely killed and then everybody judged his first touches and these kind of things.
“It’s just a joke but we have to live with that, he will deal with it brilliantly. We are patient and we know he can do good stuff.
“We all know they are a special species, strikers. The other thing everybody needs (are) little positives. That means goals, or goal involvements.
“I think Darwin would have been fine even without scoring the third one because the penalty was Millie’s cross and his header.
