Football fans loved seeing Liverpool star Darwin Nunez giving his shirt to a ball boy instead of a supporter holding up a sign asking for it on Sunday.

The Reds defeated Brighton 2-1 at Anfield this weekend, a result which saw them go top of the Premier League table after Arsenal drew 0-0 with Manchester City.

Nunez went viral after the match as images appeared to show him looking at a sign in the crowd which read: ‘Nunez, can I have your jersey?’

After glancing at the sign, Nunez seemed to ignore the request and instead hand his shirt to a Liverpool ball boy, much to the amusement of some supporters.

‘Hahaha looks at him straight in the eyes whilst he’s doing it,’ Liverpool fan @Rory_Bond posted on X. ‘What a fella. Make him club captain.’

‘People begging for shirts to be let down just ruins the whole experience of the game,’ @mainstand1598 said, while @colr81 added: ‘Ban these ridiculous signs.’

Meanwhile, some fans pointed out that Nunez may not have understood the sign given he does not have the best grasp of the English language just yet.

Meanwhile, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was left delighted after his side’s victory over Brighton and said: ‘Playing wise it was really good.

‘Brighton have incredible quality. That is the measure I have for how good we were today because I really respect them. They had chances, they took more risks all of a sudden and we got slightly tired.

‘We deserved to win the game. That is what you want and then on top of that it is really cool.’

Manchester United legend and pundit Roy Keane also heaped praise on Klopp’s men.

‘He is a smart footballer (Alexis Mac Allister), I’ll tell you that – I’m usually impressed with him and his decision making,’ Keane told Sky Sports.

‘And again, like anything else when you just speed things up in the final third. He gets it here, the execution, the weight of the pass, the first touch from Mohamed Salah – beautiful.

‘Sexy football to me, this, love watching it.’
