FA Cup: Ian Wright slams Liverpool forward for costly mistake against Man Utd


Ian Wright, an Arsenal legend, has slammed Darwin Nunez for his costly mistake in Liverpool’s 4-3 FA Cup quarter-final loss to Manchester United on Sunday.

Nunez’s loss of the ball in the midfield allowed Marcus Rashford to score the equalizer in the second half of extra time.

Liverpool previously scored three goals to lead the game twice before United made a comeback.

Wright criticized Nunez in an interview with ITV, stating that he should have played the ball to the left-back instead of returning it to the dangerous area.

The mistake proved costly for Liverpool, causing them to lose the match.

“You have to look at Darwin Nunez there. What are you doing there? The thing is, he’s got the capability to play it to the left-back,” Wright said.

“You don’t put it back into that area. You just don’t do that.”
