Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville called Darwin Nunez’s red card a “moment of madness”, while Jamie Carragher described the situation as a “nightmare” for Liverpool.

Luis Diaz saved a 1-1 draw for Liverpool against Crystal Palace at Anfield, despite Nunez being sensationally sent off for a headbutt on his full-length debut.

He said: “It is a moment of madness. It’s a good ass, Andersen will feel it.

“We don’t know why he did it. I’ve done two or three of these things in my career. We don’t know why we’re reacting. We have no idea. We leave and think ‘what did I just do'” – honest I kicked a ball to a fan at Everton and did something similar in a game against Steve McManaman It’s that red mist It comes over you.

“When you get kicked off the field like that, that’s the loneliest place in the world. You may have a man of equipment with you, but it’s terrible. You’re in that locker room and your teammates are on the field. You left them down and you feel so bad you don’t have to say too much to a player who has been sent off the field because it’s terrible anyway and they take the responsibility I’m sure he would be around the locker room went to apologize. the rest of the guys in that locker room will pick him up because it’s a good locker room.”

Carragher: a nightmare for Liverpool and Klopp

Sky Sports’ Jamie Carragher:

“It’s a nightmare for him as a player at Liverpool, it’s a nightmare for Jurgen Klopp trying to integrate him into a new team. The problem wasn’t tonight, the problem is how long it will be before he gets back. the team, because he will probably only be on the bench after the suspension to get up to speed, so it could be five or six weeks before we see him back in the Liverpool base.”

Klopp: Nunez shouldn’t behave like this

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp:

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

“I’ll talk to him, it’s no use if I talk too much about it in public. It’s not the reaction you want to see. That’s what the Premier League center halves will do to him, he’s a handful himself. “

‘Nunez will learn from the red card’

Liverpool midfielder James Milner:

“I did not see the incident” [Nunez’s red card]. He will be disappointed in that. We need to get around him and gather. He will learn from it. The team reacted well and the ground did and got behind us. We could have taken it, but it wasn’t to be. Good teams react to disappointments and stick together. You see the readiness for the season and the battle. We have had a tough week and the preparations have not been optimal. No one can deny that we have a fighting spirit.

“Sometimes you need a moment of brilliance and when you have players like Luis on the pitch he can create something out of nothing. It was an incredible goal. Hopefully there will be many more.”
