Klopp reveals

Robert Lewandowsk

i’s similar struggles in front of goal during his spell at Dortmund.

He told his press conference:

"There are a lot of similarities [with Nunez], to be honest. Yes, I think Lewi would tell the same story. We had shooting sessions where he didn’t finish off one.

"We had bets all the time for €10 where I said, ‘If you score more than 10 times I will pay you €10 and if you don’t you have to pay me’. My pocket was full of money."

Jurgen Klopp

believes Nunez's potential is "obvious" and he will learn from his mistakes as he’s optimistic about his development at Anfield.

"I think we all agree that the potential is so obvious. Is everything right? No. I think it’s clear when you see the second chance, the big chance in the second half (against Aston Villa) he can run a little bit on an angle and then he has a free choice,"

he added.

“But it is all coming. You do it like this, the next time you do it like that. I had this situation with Lewi but it is not only Lewi. He is the obvious comparison. The team is completely convinced and that’s really cool.”
