Liverpool ace Darwin Nunez angrily PIES referee and Toulouse goalscorer after being left fuming at disallowed equaliser | The Sun
LIVERPOOL star Darwin Nunez angrily pied both the referee and a Toulouse goalscorer.
That’s after being left fuming at his side’s disallowed equaliser in the Europa League last night.
Nunez was a sub as Liverpool suffered a 3-2 group stage defeat in France on Thursday.
Liverpool were 2-0 down before pulling one back through an own goal with 15 minutes left.
Toulouse made it 3-1 just moments later before Diogo Jota gave his side a glimmer of hope with a goal in the 89th minute.
And deep into stoppage time, Jarell Quansah pulled the trigger on a fine finish to rescue a dramatic point.

However, the goal was eventually ruled out by VAR for a handball committed by Alexis Mac Allister earlier in the build-up.
The controversial decision left Jurgen Klopp enraged after the final whistle.
And he was even more angry when he had to hold his press conference in a TENT, allowing Toulouse fans to interrupt.
But it wasn’t just the Reds boss who was upset by the disallowed strike.

Uruguay striker Nunez came off the bench in France and cut an unhappy figure at full time.
As players from both sides shook hands with each other, Nunez had other ideas.
He first blanked referee Georgi Kabakovafter, seemingly in protest at Liverpool’s 97th minute heartbreak.
But Nunez also pied Toulouse goalscorer Frank Magri, who attempted to shake the Liverpool man’s hand.
However, Nunez simply swiped his hand up in the air in a point-blank refusal.
And fans reacted on social media to the incident, with one saying: “No outrage from the pundits here.”
Another joked: “He even missed the handshake.”
One noted: “Liverpool is a big club, their players should have been trained to respect their opponent and have good sportsmanship.”
Another added: “Imagine the fume if this happened the other way round, we would never hear the end of how disgraceful it is.”
