Liverpool veteran Milner happy for 2-goal Nunez: A real team player

Liverpool veteran James Milner was happy seeing Darwin Nunez score twice in victory over Southampton.

Milner believes the understanding between Nunez and fullback Andrew Robertson is improving.

He explained: “They’re getting that understanding and it’s great that Darwin is banging those goals in. He has settled in pretty quick, to be fair. He’s still learning the language but he’s getting it, he has got a great sense of humour and obviously we’ll see more of that I’m sure once his English comes out more.

“He has got everything so it’s pleasing for him to get the goals. And Robbo, we know how much he loves an assist as well so it’s important that he keeps getting those.

“Just watching him in training and his attributes, his willingness to work for the team, he is obviously great in the air, a big presence, great strike with both feet, he hits it early, wants to score goals. He is a different type of striker to the other guys up there and that’s obviously great for us as a squad to have these players who all have different attributes.”
