'Having a bit of a chuckle': Dean Ashton suggests Liverpool have a player who everyone is laughing at now

Supporters across the country are ‘having a bit of a chuckle’ at Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez.

Nunez has been a divisive figure ever since arriving from Benfica in 2022. Not for Liverpool fans it must be said, who are near-universal in their appreciation of what the 24-year-old offers.

But according to former England striker Dean Aston, Nunez has become a bit of a laughing-stock thanks to his high profile missed chances. However, speaking to TalkSPORT, Ashton did back the Uruguayan to eventually have the last laugh.

“I wouldn’t say [he’s] unlucky because some of the chances are excellent chances that you would expect a top striker to take,” explained the 39-year-old. “I think that’s a bit of him, I think he’s still developing, still needs to improve that clinical-ness. But the volume of opportunities he’s getting tells me he’s a super player in that sense and that he can improve and will improve as the games and seasons go on for Darwin Nunez.

“But at the moment it seems like a lot of people are probably having a bit of a chuckle as though he’s the type of player who’ll never get it right. I think he will, I just think the volume of chances he’s getting is a real positive.”

Nunez still silencing the doubters

This has been the case for Nunez ever since he arrived in the Premier League. Owing to his big frame, lightning speed and fiery personality, Liverpool’s No.9 is hard to miss.

As a result, anything that goes against him tends to be to the delight of opposition fans.

Unfortunately, since joining Liverpool Darwin has given these neighsayers plenty of ammunition. After another series of missed chances against Luton Town this weekend, the spotlight is on him once again. Nevertheless, Ashton says there is light at the end of the tunnel for the Uruguay international.
