Darwin Nunez sends wordless reaction on Twitter after his first ever training session for Liverpool

Darwin Nunez took part in his first ever Liverpool training session yesterday, as he joined his new teammates in Thailand.

And the Uruguayan forward appeared to enjoy his first taste of being a Liverpool player. Once the session had finished, the official Liverpool FC Twitter page posted a couple of pictures of Nunez in action.

“The first session as a Red for Darwin Nunez,” they captioned the pictures with, complete with a hearts in eyes emoji.

Darwin responded in kind, with a hearts in eyes emoji of his own. You love to see it.

Darwin getting down to business

It’s always exciting to see a new player in action for your team for the very first time. Given the price-tag on Nunez’s head, the anticipation has been even greater.

Ideally, any big signing’s first steps at Liverpool would take place at the AXA Training Centre. But given the way it’s panned out for Darwin, that hasn’t been possible.

Instead, perhaps it’s good that he’ll have plenty of chance to get to know his new teammates up close and personal. There’s no escaping each other on such a tour, and it’s a good chance for bonds to be made.

Seeing as Nunez reportedly doesn’t speak a whole lot of English, it’s likely that he’ll find a place within the Spanish speakers of the squad.

Thankfully, Liverpool have a few of those. Adrian in particular was reportedly a big help in settling in Luis Diaz when he arrived in January. Thiago Alcantara and Diaz himself will also surely help in any translation issues.

Meanwhile, there is a distinct South American flavour to the Liverpool squad at the moment. Roberto Firmino, Alisson Becker and Fabinho have all been at the club for some time now, and will no doubt be keen to help the Uruguayan.

As for on the pitch matters, you would expect it unlikely that we’ll see too much of Darwin tomorrow against Manchester United. Depending on how he trains, there is a chance that the 23-year-old will play some part. But Friday’s game against Crystal Palace looks a better bet for some decent game-time.

Either way, it’s great to finally have our new man all kitted out and ready to go. The countdown to the new season starts now!
