Darwin Nunez

Luis Suarez has revealed the advice he gave to fellow Uruguayan Darwin Nunez after the Liverpool new signing saw red for headbutting Joachim Andersen during the Reds’ 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace on Monday night.

Suarez, 35, has urged Nunez, 23, to learn from his mistakes after the striker’s first English Premier League start came to a premature end.

Branding himself an ‘idiot’, the Nacional forward, who was no stranger to controversy during his three-year spell at Liverpool, admitted that he ‘suffered’ from his own mistakes while in the English Premier League and urged Nunez to bounce back stronger.

Speaking to Telemundo, the former Barcelona star:

I talked to him because he is just starting out, and I wanted to make him aware that from now on [opponents] will be seeking him out twice or three times more often.

Even more so in England. He’s hearing this from an idiot who made mistakes and suffered for them, but falling down and getting up again made me stronger.

Don’t give them any more chances, it’ll only get worse.

Darwin is someone who listens a lot.

He is very smart that way and I think he will try to turn this situation around.

‘It’s not a big deal, we have all made mistakes, we have all been sent off.

The problem is that he’s only just arrived over there and in England, to put it lightly, they make a big deal out of everything.

During his time at Liverpool, Suarez was handed an eight-match suspension after the English FA found him guilty of racially abusing Manchester United left-back Patrice Evra.

The striker later received a four-month ban for biting Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup ahead of his blockbuster move to Barcelona in 2014.

Suarez and Nunez are set to team up at the Qatar World Cup in November, where Uruguay will face Portugal, Ghana and South Korea in the group stage.
