‘Don’t Compare Me With Nunez’ —Man United Legend Blasts
Manchester United legend Andy Cole has expressed his displeasure after he was compared to Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez.
Nunez was in action for Liverpool against Manchester City in the round of 16 of the Carabao Cup which the Reds lost 3-2.
The Uruguayan was guilty of some wasteful finishing on a number of occasions against the reigning Premier League champions.
Nunez had a hat-trick of efforts that were all dragged wide of the post, failing to even get his strikes on target.
After the game, some suggested that while Nunez’s finishing was nothing to write about, the fact he is finding chances is a positive and is similar to the way Cole used to operate during his time at United.
However, having seen the comparisons on Tiwtter, monitored by Mirror Football, Cole quickly hit back by writing: “Cole… Nunez… Not sure where this nonsense started. But it is Christmas, the festival season… I am happily retired. Five Premier Leagues, two FA Cups, one League Cup, one Champions League, golden boot, Young Player of the Year.
“187 Premier League goals, one penalty. Life is what you make it.”
When one Twitter user explained to the former Old Trafford star that the original tweet was actually in defence of Nunez rather than any sort of criticism towards Cole, the 51-year-old replied: “Sorry Dave worded wrongly or rightly… People need to stop disrespecting my name because I don’t play the game.
“Just a quiet guy getting on with life and people think they can disrespect me. Look at the numbers and compare them to anyone else.”
Nunez featured for Uruguay at this year’s World Cup in Qatar but could not help them progress from the group stage.
