Fans are convinced Liverpool were scammed into signing Darwin Nunez after footage emerged of him blundering his way through Uruguay training this week.
The £85million man has made an embarrassing start to his Liverpool career after missing several sitters in pre-season and getting sent off on his home debut against Crystal Palace, and it appears his troubles have followed him out on international duty.
During a recent Uruguay training session, Nunez was filmed taking a shot from the corner of the box which missed the target by an alarming distance and nearly hit the corner flag.

Rival fans leaped onto social media to mock the Liverpool star, with one user insisting his wayward effort was "harder to do than score".
"This guy is the biggest scam in football," one person tweeted, while another wrote: "Liverpool fans should apologise for ever comparing this guy to Haaland."
A third said: "How did Nunez make it as a pro? Hahah," and a fourth joked: "This looks like he's playing golf, trying to get the ball to the flag!"

Another commented: "His clips are so bad they are almost impressive."
Nunez is in line to feature against Iran and Canada in what will be Uruguay's final two games ahead of the World Cup.
Liverpool fans will be hoping he can shake off some of the cobwebs and return to England a man revitalised, but on this evidence, that doesn't look too likely.
