Nunez suffered a hamstring injury during Liverpool’s thrilling 4-3 defeat to Manchester United in the sixth round of the FA Cup on Sunday. Despite completing the full 120 minutes after extra time and providing an assist for Alexis Mac Allister, Nunez’s error led to Marcus Rashford’s equalizer to make it 3-3.

“Now, the boys go on international duty. We hope they come back healthy. Lucho [Diaz] felt his groin, Darwin [Nunez] has a hamstring issue, and Cody twisted his ankle,” Klopp said.

Liverpool has received some relief as Nunez has withdrawn from Uruguay’s squad for this month’s friendlies following discussions with head coach Marcelo Bielsa.

Uruguay is scheduled to play against a Basque Country XI in Bilbao and then against Ivory Coast in Lens as part of a European tour. They have only one more friendly scheduled before the start of this summer’s Copa America in the US.

Nunez has been in fine form this season, tallying 17 goals and 14 assists across 42 games in all competitions. However, he has only recently returned from a hamstring injury sustained in January, and Liverpool is keen to ensure he does not miss significant time during the final stretch of the season.

Liverpool currently sits second in the Premier League table, just one point behind leaders Arsenal with ten games remaining. They are also through to the quarter-finals of the Europa League and are set to face Atalanta.
