Fabinho warns Liverpool fans over Nunez expectations

Fabinho has warned Liverpool fans they must be patient with €100m signing Darwin Nunez.

Fabinho has highlighted how important a role Roberto Firmino and Alberto Moreno played when helping him settle in after making the switch from Monaco in the summer of 2018.

Fabinho told The Athletic: “Darwin may need a bit of time to adapt, let’s see, but a player like him can really change a team. He’s a proper number nine. He’s a goal-scorer. He scored in both games against us in the Champions League. We know how good he is.

“Even though we lost Sadio, I still believe that we can fight for everything. The team is still really strong. For a long time it was always Sadio on the left side. Luis [Diaz] will become increasingly important.

“Whenever we sign a new player I always try to help him as much as possible. Like Darwin now, his English isn’t very good, so I’m always trying to help him in training by explaining some situations to him. When I first came to Liverpool, Firmino and [Alberto] Moreno were really important for me. They helped me to settle in. I try to support new players now in the same way as those boys supported me.”
