​Liverpool manager Klopp warns Benfica not reliant on Darwin Nunez

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has rubbished suggestions that Benfica are reliant on forward Darwin Nunez.

The young Uruguayan striker has been in red hot form this season, both domestically and in the Champions League.

Nunez is being linked with big money moves this summer, but Klopp believes there is a lot more to this Benfica team than one player.

"He is not the only one, they have a really good team, a really talented team, but he is good, the next one from Uruguay," Klopp said in his press conference.

"I don't know how they play together, [Edinson] Cavani, [Luis] Suarez and him and yes the goals he scored, the one against Ajax was a massive one. He did not start the last game but we expect him to score tomorrow.

"The others, I know Julian Weigl and have experience as well as with Jan Vertonghen and Nicolas Otamendi."
