To Liverpool, From Uruguay: Darwin Nunez’s Incredible And Inspirational Story To The Top

Liverpool are on the verge of signing Uruguayan superstar Darwin Nunez from Portuguese side Benfica. LFCTR take a look into the inspirational journey Nunez has made to one of the greatest football clubs in the world.

Darwin Nunez and his family lived in the poorest part of a place called Artigas. A city that lies just on the border of neighboring country Brazil and is the furthest from Uruguayan capital Montevideo.

His father worked as a construction worker, whilst his mother would collect and sell plastic bottles, in order to make sure food is put on the table for Darwin and his brother. At times, they would go to bed on an empty stomach, but his mother would put her boys before herself if there weren’t enough food.
