Rodolfo Catino, director of the Pennarol Football Club. The famous Uruguayan team reveals the story of when Darwin Nunez was discovered before he became the world’s top star today.

         Peñaral discovered Nunñez at the age of 14. Before spurring him into the first team in 2017, before being released to Spanish ufabet club Almeria for £5m. In 2019 and the following year. It is sale to Benfica for £15 million until this summer at Liverpool. 

         Cartino revealed the story of Núñez via Sunsport: “You can see at the age of 17 how far he will go as a footballer,” Catino said. His valuation should be higher.”

         “Liverpool is the perfect club for him to develop as a player even more. He’s done that at Benfica, where Darwin has no limits. Of course, he had to adjust because it wouldn’t be easy at first. But then he will show all his abilities.”

“Since 2009 we have brought developed players from out of town to the capital, Darwin was introduce into our training framework established in Artigas in 2013, where we partnered with Jose Per. Domo, our scout.”

         “He spent a year at Penarol, played in the seventh division at 14, but he missed his family and people at Artigas and went home. We don’t want to lose him. And after a few months we went to him again and he went back to Penarol and his brother Junior Nunez also played in an improved league.

         “But Darwin has always stood out. Showing that he is a great player and a great striker. With that situation, Penarol helped his family move to Montevideo to make Darwin more comfortable.”
