“I don’t know why he did that. I’ve done something like this two or three times in my career. I don’t know why I react. I don’t know.” I kicked the ball at the Everton fans, and I did something similar in my match against Steve McManaman.It’s that red fog.It’s coming over you.

“When you get sent off like that, it’s the loneliest place in the world. Kitman may be there, it’s scary. You’re in that dressing room and your teammates are out on the pitch. You left them behind.”You don’t have to say much to the player who got sent off.It was just awful and they take responsibility.He would have gone around the dressing room to apologize.

Carragher: A nightmare for Liverpool and Klopp

Sky Sports’ Jamie Carragher:

“It’s a nightmare start for him as a player at Liverpool. It’s a nightmare for Jürgen Klopp who wants to integrate him into his new team. The question wasn’t tonight. The question is how long until he’s back. 5 by the time we see him return to Liverpool to start the XI, as he is likely to be on the bench with a suspension and likely only to regain his speed. It can take weeks or six weeks. ”

Klopp: That’s not how Nunez behaves

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp:

“I’ve seen it. It’s a red card of course. He’s been provoked all the time, but that’s not how he should behave.

“I talk to him. It doesn’t make sense if I talk about it too much in public. That’s not the reaction you want to see. Premier League centre-halves do that to him. He himself is a handful.” .”

‘Nunez will learn from the red card’

Liverpool midfielder James Milner:

“I didn’t see the incident [Nunez’s red card]. He will be disappointed in it. We must evade him and rally. he will learn from it. The team responded well and the ground responded and caught up behind us. We could have hurt it, but we didn’t. Good teams react to disappointment and band together. You will find yourself ready for the season and battle. It was a tough week and the preparation was not ideal. No one can deny that he has a fighting spirit.

“Sometimes you need moments that shine. When you have a player like Luis on the pitch, he can create something out of nothing. It was an unbelievable goal. We need more goals.” I hope
