Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez ‘storms down tunnel’ after brief cameo in win over Bournemouth

Darwin Nunez is alleged to have stormed down the tunnel following Liverpool’s 3-1 win against Bournemouth at Anfield.

For the second Premier League game this season, the 24-year-old was left out of Jurgen Klopp‘s starting XI.

And he wasn’t thrown on against the Cherries until the 86th minute with the Reds 3-1 up.

The Uruguay international had too little time to make an impact as Liverpool battled back from behind to claim all three points in Merseyside.

According to eyewitnesses at the match, Nunez, who joined from Benfica last year in a deal rising to £85million, made a hasty exit off the pitch.

One Liverpool fan tweeted: “Nunez straight off down the tunnel at full time, didn’t look happy. No idea why.”

Another posted: “Nunez very unhappy. Stormed straight down the tunnel. No idea what’s happened.”

A third added: “Nunez not a happy bunny straight down the tunnel.”

This supporter then commented: “Darwin Nunez not happy at all walked off the pitch at the ft whistle and straight down the tunnel.”

Meanwhile one fan watching simply stated: “Nunez straight down the tunnel. Don’t look happy.”

Nunez has struggled for consistency since arriving last summer, with the forward scoring nine Premier League goals in his debut season in England.

He has found the back of the net just four times in the top-flight in 2023, with his last strike coming in April during the 6-1 win away at Leeds.
