James Milner continued his efforts to motivate the oncoming Liverpool stars making way onto the pitch in the latter stages of the Reds’ pre-season meeting with Manchester United.
The Englishman gave a reassuring tap to Darwin Nunez whilst encouraging the Uruguayan with a simple ‘all the best, Dar’ after an expletive message to his teammates.
The 23-year-old provided an encouraging if not world-beating outing against Erik ten Hag’s men – a performance that inspired reactionary fans to express concerns over the striker’s abilities.
Such fears are, of course, entirely unwarranted so early in pre-season and we’ve not a shadow of a doubt that our £64m will prove his worth.
