Liverpool new boy Darwin Nunez is delighted at the praise he received from defender Virgil van Dijk.

The Uruguayan striker has signed in a big money deal from Benfica this summer.

Nunez is rumoured to replace Sadio Mane in the Reds squad, with Mane linked with a summer move to Bayern Munich.

Asked about van Dijk's words, Nunez told the club website: "It's really nice when another player speaks so positively about you and, of course, Van Dijk is a really quick and strong player.

"The fact that he spoke really well of me was something I was really proud about and happy. So, yes, I'm proud of the effort and the hard work that I put in."
