Darwin Nunez INJURED! Another blow for Liverpool as striker withdraws from Uruguay squad forcing La Celeste to pay $20,000 fine

Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez has withdrawn from the Uruguay squad for friendlies against Japan and South Korea due to an ankle injury.

  • Nunez out of Uruguay squad
  • Has suffered ankle injury
  • More problems for Jurgen Klopp

WHAT HAPPENED? Liverpool have been hit with another blow as Uruguay have announced Nunez has withdrawn from their international squad and been replaced by Jonathan Rodriguez. The Uruguayan Football Association must now pay a fine of $20,000 as they had promised to bring 15 players who played at World Cup 2022 to Asia for friendlies against Japan and South Korea, as reported by Futbol.com. Nunez has been sidelined with a "deep cut to the ankle" sustained in the Champions League defeat to Real Madrid.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Jurgen Klopp will be hoping the injury to Nunez is not too serious as his team face a battle to finish in the top four of the Premier League. The Reds are six points behind Tottenham in fourth but do have a game in hand on Antonio Conte's side. Nunez has been a regular starter for Klopp, scoring eight goals and contributing three assists in the Premier League this season after arriving from Benfica.

WHAT NEXT? Liverpool return to action after the international break against Manchester City in the Premier League.
