Liverpool's Darwin Nunez reveals the truth about THAT fishing photo

New Liverpool star Darwin Nunez has spoken out about that fishing photo which went viral this summer during the Red's pre-season tour.

The picture sees Nunez topless with his hair down holding a behemoth of a fish, but the Uruguayan striker didn’t actually catch it!

“To tell you the truth, it was Kostas who caught that first one, which weighed 120, and it was too big for one person to be able to pick on their own!

“We have the photo to prove it, with all of us holding the fish. Then it was my turn, and I caught the fish that I was holding in the photo on my own."


"Then Alisson caught the fish he was holding in his picture. So pretty much everyone who went fishing caught something, but Kostas was the real king as his was the biggest in there.”

Nunez arrived at Anfield from Benfica in what is set to be a club record transfer, and has settled in well already to surroundings at Kirkby.


He bagged four goals in a pre-season match against RB Leipzig and one in the Community Shield win over Manchester City.

And not only has he been out catching fish with his new teammates, but he’s been bonding with them quickly after moving in June.

“Things have been going very well. I was a bit nervous at first, since it was all new to start with. It’s a bit like when you leave one school to go to a new one, with all new classmates – it was more or less the same as that."

"But then as the days went by, I felt really relaxed with my teammates." 


“You want to try to understand but you don’t understand anything at all when they’re talking. But then Milner speaks Spanish, Thiago and the Brazilian lads, as well as Luis Diaz, who only arrived a short while ago too. So, I’m now feeling very well and much more relaxed and at ease here, and definitely not as nervous as I was in the first few days.”

Nunez will hope to earn his first Liverpool start against Fulham, who the Reds face on the opening day this weekend.
