Fans in stitches as Jurgen Klopp looks baffled after Darwin Nunez plants kiss on Thiago's head during Spurs thriller | The Sun

JURGEN KLOPP'S baffled expression had fans in stitches as Darwin Nunez planted a kiss on Thiago's forehead prior to coming on for Liverpool against Tottenham.

The German turned to Nunez in the 73rd minute with his side leading 3-1 at Anfield.

Thiago, who has struggled with a hip flexor injury for much of the second half of the season, was not named in Liverpool's matchday squad for the 4-3 victory against Spurs.

As Nunez prepared to come on, however, Thiago hopped out from behind the bench to seemingly deliver some final instructions to his team-mate.

The Uruguayan appeared to appreciate whatever the Spaniard said, responding by kissing his forehead.

As he did so, a bemused-looking Klopp delivered a withering look towards his experienced midfielder.

Others claimed that Thiago was merely translating for Nunez, who has been taking English lessons once a week this season.

While it was also pointed out that the 23-year-old went on to lose Richarlison as the Brazilian equalised for Spurs in stoppage time.

Speaking about Nunez's fortunes last month, Klopp admitted: "We were not stable for a long time in this season.

"Then on top of the problems we had you’ve got boys adapting to different types of defending.

"If football was so easy that you just put 11 players with the most potential out on the pitch and just hope it works out then you wouldn’t need me or another manager.

"It’s about fine tuning it and that’s what we’re doing.

"After this season there’s another season and that’s already in my mind as well. Darwin can play both positions really well 100 per cent. Learning English will help him massively."
