Nunez is more flexible than Haaland, says former Almeria coach

Darwin Nunez says one of his former coaches is “more flexible” and more suitable for Liverpool than the Earling Holland.

Nunez joined Liverpool from Benfica on Tuesday for a fee in the region of £ 64million (€ 75m) plus £ 21.4m (€ 25m).

The Uruguayan striker has netted 34 times in 41 appearances for Benfica this season.

Meanwhile, Manchester City, who beat Liverpool by one point in the Premier League last month, have signed a £ 51.2m (€ 60m) deal from Borussia Dortmund.

Haland has scored 86 goals in 89 appearances in two Bundesliga seasons for Dortmund, and it has been speculated that he or Nunez will do better in English football.

Former Almeria assistant coach David Badia worked second with Spain in the 2019-20 season, netting 16 goals in 32 league games before moving to Benfica.

In an exclusive interview with Status Performance, Badiya believes Nunez is a different type of player from Holland and is quick to support his move to Liverpool.

“I don’t want to say they are one because I think Darwin might be a little more flexible,” he said. He is a player who can change direction a little faster than Holland.

“Maybe Haland is a little more powerful and when it starts [running] He breaks everything in front of him, but I think so [Nunez] He can change direction a little faster and I think he is more suited to the style of Liverpool.

Badia Nunez, who ruled Cyprus after leaving Almeria in January 2021, believes his stay at Anfield could be in the running for the Ballon d’Or.

“I think no one has talked about Darwin,” he said, adding that he could challenge Haland and Killian Mbabane for a bigger prize in the future.

“Perhaps in public, I mean he did not. [got] Brands of the other two.

“It’s going to be a very smart move from Liverpool, because everyone seems to be watching [at] Haland… No one said anything about Darwin.

But I knew him, I followed him, and I knew that. [club] Who is going to take it [get a] Cheap [deal]. ”

When Badiya joined Penarol Almeria in 2019, he expressed his first impressions of Nunez when he was the then head coach and former Real Madrid midfielder.

“In the few training sessions we took, we were able to see that. [Nunez] He had something special. We have seen that it is Almeria [too] It’s too small for him. ”

“Everything he was doing was on a different level. The speed of execution was absolute [different] Not only in the Spanish second division league team but also in comparison with other league players.

“He was a very important player for the team, and his team-mates knew he was going to move forward, because everyone was looking at him from where he was standing.

“We know this team is coming, we know the other team is coming, and we know it will eventually go away and it will go its way.”
