Luis Suarez reached out to gutted Darwin Nunez after idiotic Liverpool red card

Ex-Liverpool star Luis Suarez reached out to fellow hot-head Darwin Nunez after the 23-year-old's silly red card against Crystal Palace.

The red mist descended on the £85m man when he stupidly stuck his head into the face of Palace defender Joachim Andersen. Nunez was instantly red carded, and while Jurgen Klopp’s side did manage to come back from behind and secure a 1-1 draw, the former Benfica man may have made himself a target for Premier League defenders.

As well as Monday night’s huge clash against Manchester United at Old Trafford, Nunez will also have to sit out Liverpool’s clashes against Bournemouth and Newcastle United. And Suarez, who was also a persistent target for the defensive wind-up merchants of the Premier League, offered the 23-year-old some words of wisdom.

“I talked to him because he is just starting out, and I wanted to make him aware that from now on [opposition players] will be seeking him out twice or three times more often,” the former Red said to Telemundo. "Even more so in England.

“He’s hearing this from an idiot who made mistakes and suffered for them. But falling down and getting up again made me stronger. Don’t give them any more chances. It’ll only get worse.”

Suarez spent three seasons at Liverpool before moving to Barcelona for £75m in the summer of 2014. Via a two year stay at Atletico Madrid, Suarez returned to his homeland to play for Uruguayan giants Nacional.

Watching from afar, Suarez believes Nunez can learn from his mistake and pick up from the explosive start which saw him score against Manchester City in the Community Shield and against Fulham on his Premier League debut.

"He is very smart that way and I think he will try to turn this situation around,” he added.

“It’s not a big deal, we have all made mistakes, we have all been sent off. The problem is that he’s only just arrived over there and in England, to put it lightly, they make a big deal out of everything.”

Nunez himself took to social media in the week and wrote: "I am aware of the ugly attitude I had. I'm here to learn from my mistakes and it won't happen again. Apologies to Liverpool all. I'll be back."
