Liverpool star Darwin Nunez has taken to social media on Tuesday, to send a message of apology to the club’s supporters.
The name of hitman Nunez of course took its place front and centre in the headlines 24 hours ago.

Despite a moment of magic on the part of Luis Diaz early in the 2nd-half, Liverpool were forced to settle for a share of the spoils, in a 1-1 stalemate.
The woes of the evening’s hosts, though, as alluded to above, did not end solely with the disappointing nature of their eventual result.
In addition, Klopp and co. saw a key member of the club’s frontline sent for an early bath.

Taking to his official social media platforms on Tuesday evening, the 22-year-old has sent a message of apology to all associated with his new club.
The post in question can be seen below, with Nunez also assuring that he’ll soon ‘be back’:
