Darwin Nunez apologises for red card vs Crystal Palace

Darwin Nunez has apologised for his ‘ugly attitude’ and a red card in Liverpool’s shock 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace at Anfield on Monday evening.

The £85m signing was given his marching orders in his first ever start for the Reds after he headbutted Palace defender Joachim Andersen early in the second half.

Due to the headbutt being violent conduct, the forward will miss three domestic games.

But the FA may review the footage and decide that Nunez’s ban should be extended.

Darwin Nunez has now taken to Twitter following the incident to apologise and insist that such an action will not happen again:

“I am aware of the ugly attitude I had. I’m here to learn from my mistakes, and it won’t happen again.”

The red card was the first of the forward’s short career. After the game to the press, Jurgen Klopp stated his disappointment in Nunez.

Klopp said:

“There is always a first time.

“But now he has another ‘pre-season’. The length of his suspension is unknown to me.

“So we will use it for physical work. Not as punishment, to make him even stronger, and that is what we will try.”

Star defender Virgil van Dijk also insisted that the youngster has to learn to control himself on the pitch:

“His disappointment was probably a reflection of his self-disgust as well.

“But it’s a learning curve, and obviously, we will always back him.

“He’s got the backing from us, and he knows it should not happen again, and hopefully, it will be that way.

“He has to control himself. I think that’s a separate thing. He has to manage himself.

“He has to know that these things can happen, especially in the Premier League.

“As I say, it will be a learning curve for him, and hopefully, it will never happen again.
