With Liverpool sanctioning a club-record transfer fee for new striker Darwin Nunez, Dr Rajpal Brar assesses his history of knee injuries and any future concerns.

One of the primary indicators of a player’s injury risk is their previous record, as the greatest risk for future injury is a previous injury – especially with soft tissue (muscles, ligaments, tendons) injuries.

With that in mind, let’s go through Nunez’s injury history.

In 2017, Nunez suffered a left knee injury, and although the injury was never confirmed, it sounds like he suffered a rupture to his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and underwent a reconstruction.

The club reportedly spent nearly £65 million on the initial transfer fee with an additional £20 million in potential bonuses, which would break the previous transfer record for Virgil van Dijk.

In the following year, 2018, Nunez again injured his left knee requiring surgery.

When looking at Nunez’s injury history in a vacuum without context, two left knee surgeries in back-to-back years and a right knee surgery certainly doesn’t sound great.
