Luis Suarez revealed he warned Darwin Nunez he will be a marked man both on and off the pitch after his nightmare debut at home to Crystal Palace on Monday.

The Uruguay international has already established himself as a cult hero following his club-record move from Benfica earlier this summer.

Nunez wreaked havoc against Manchester City in the Community Shield, scoring the opening goal, and he was also on target against Fulham a fortnight ago after coming off the bench to help salvage a draw.

The 23-year-old earned his first start against Palace earlier this week but his Anfield spell ended in disaster after he was sent off shortly before the hour mark for heading Joachim Andersen.

Jurgen Klopp will now be without his new centre-forward for three games, including Monday’s heavyweight clash against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Suarez, no stranger to controversy during his eventful Liverpool career, revealed that he has been in touch with his compatriot to warn him of the dangers that could befall him should he become too distracted by the English media that he fears will be exposed to. Catch him.

“With what happened to him the other day, I talked to him,” Suarez told Telemundo. ‘He’s just getting started.

‘He must be aware that now they will be looking for him, double or triple, especially now that he is in England. An idiot who thinks he has never made a mistake will tell you that you have done a bad thing.

‘It’s nothing serious, we’ve all made a mistake and been sent off. But in England they make everything bigger than it really is.

‘It’s important when you fall down to get back up and be stronger. Darwin is someone who listens a lot, is very intelligent and can turn this situation around.

– The moment Darwin experiences at football level is spectacular. It is admirable, at his age he is already at Liverpool.

‘He has to enjoy this phase, keep giving and keep learning.’
