ReactionDarwin Nunez: I'm very proud to be Liverpool's No.9
Darwin Nunez revealed his pride and inspiration after becoming Liverpool's new No.9.
The striker has now officially switched to the famous shirt number ahead of the 2023-24 campaign, having worn 27 during his first season at Anfield after joining last summer.
And Nunez told Liverpoolfc.com: “I’m really happy to wear number nine. And I’m very proud too.
“Honestly, previously other players represented this number really well and now it’s my turn to wear it. And I hope that everything goes well.
“I hope I’m able to represent it the best way just as the previous players did. And hopefully this is for many years and that it brings a lot of joy too.”
