Liverpool striker Nunez: Truth is I don't know what Klopp is saying

Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez concedes he's struggling to understand manager Jurgen Klopp.

Nunez, who started last night's Champions League win against Rangers, admits he's yet to pick up English.

"The truth is that I honestly don't understand when he (Klopp) talks in team talks. Of course I ask my teammates to translate what he says, but I think he is very clear about the style of play," Nunez told TNT Sports.

"He asks us to do the simple things, not to be afraid and to have self-confidence.

"And when we lose the ball, he wants us to put the opposition under pressure. That's what he always asks us to do."

This season, Nunez has managed to score two goals and provided one assist in eight competitive matches for Liverpool.
