'He doesn’t give a damn what other people will think': Benfica insider lifts lid on how Nunez deals with errors

Just a few games into his Liverpool career, Darwin Nunez has committed the most high-profile error of his career, headbutting Crystal Palace defender Joachim Andersen.

He took his time before apologising to the Liverpool fans - and this is something that we could see coming if we were familiar with him during his time at Benfica.

"That (apologising) proves just how humble he is," Eduardo Mota who worked with the striker as Benfica's sports psycholgists told FourFourTwo.

"When you don’t admit your mistake, you make up excuses. But you’ll never be able to correct your error if you never admit it.

"He doesn’t give a damn about what other people will think, his main priority is to grow up as a footballer and keep gaining experience.

"He’s already featured in all sorts of competitions – competitions like the ones in South America, which are way tougher than the Premier League in terms of provocation and violence – and only once before had he been sent off, in the Spanish Segunda Division. So don’t believe he’s that player based on one single episode.

"We can expect defenders trying to get in his head more now, but I’ve absolutely no doubt he’ll be a big hit in the Premier League and this won’t happen again. Having gone through so much in his life, he appreciates each step he takes forward and will seize his opportunities. He’s a special lad."
