Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, who is better? It is an obvious question that footballers have to face often. But What if you ask the GOAT who is the best player in today’s generation? What will his answer be? Exactly this happened when Cristiano Ronaldo was asked to answer about his favorite striker.
You may think that Cristiano’s answer should be either Haaland, Mbappe, or Harry Kane. I can tell you his answer will blow your mind. He chose a striker who was a subject to troll last season.
The €100 million striker failed to prove his worth last season and missed easy chances. But as the season progressed he found his rhythm. In 2023-24, he is enjoying one of the best seasons of his career. He is none other than Darwin Nunez.
Darwin Nunez probably having his best form since he arrived at Anfield. After a very poor start, many Liverpool fans have doubted him but Jurgen Klopp didn’t. The Uruguayan striker surprised everyone when he scored a brace against Newcastle and won the game for Liverpool. Worth mentioning, his skill impressed Cristiano Ronaldo as well.
In this season, Nunez has registered 4 goals and 2 assists in his name in all 7 appearances for Liverpool. In the previous season, he scored 15 goals and gave 4 assists in 42 appearances. It is not a bad stat at all but the expectation from a €100 million striker was very high. Seems in this season Darwin will explode and break all the records for his club.
Cristiano Ronaldo About Darwin Nunez:
Recently, journalist, Francois Plateau revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo had praised Darwin Nunez. The GOAT has said that Darwin is special. Receiving praise from a GOAT obviously is not easy. Liverpool fans should be happy that Cristiano realized the talent hidden in Darwin that many Liverpool fans haven’t realized.
Cristiano Said, “ I like the likes of Haaland, Benzema, and Kane, but the Uruguayan playing for Liverpool is something special, I think. He’s quick, strong, tall, and possesses a different skill set than the rest. Darwin Núñez.” You can read the Tweet here.
