Manchester United legend Andy Cole compared to Darwin Nunez. After Liverpool’s Carabao Cup loss to Manchester City on December 22, Andy Cole, a former player for Manchester United, responded bluntly to the comparison to Darwin Nunez. The Uruguayan international squandered a few easy chances to score as his club was eliminated from the competition by a score of 3-2. Nunez contributed to Mohamed Salah’s goal in the 48th minute.

However, some supporters were disappointed by the striker’s missed opportunities to score after leaving SL Benfica. This prompted comparisons to Cole, who scored 121 goals in 245 games for Manchester United in various competitions between 1995 and 2002.

Fans compared the playing styles of the two strikers, drawing parallels between their propensity to pass up clear-cut scoring opportunities while still finding the back of the net. Cole saw one such comparison made by Liverpool supporter @DaveOCKOP in a tweet that has since been removed.

The former England striker also responded to it by posting a tweet:
“Cole .., Nunez… not sure we’re [sic] this nonsense started !!! But it’s Christmas 🎄 the festival season… I am happily retired…. 5. PL 2 FA cups. 1 league cup. 1 champion league.. gold boot YPOTY. 187 premier league goals. 1 pen. Life is what you make it.”

Cole seemed to have been affected by the parallels. He is recognized as one of the top attackers in the Premier League, and @DaveOCKOP stressed that he didn’t mean to disparage him. As he tweeted: “Dear Andy: original tweet was poorly worded. Being a top player, you ought to have improved the original sentence. More of a Nunez support tweet than anything else. Refer to the following. (Last season, the majority of three significant opportunities were lost. 1. Kane. 2. Son. 3. Salah). The top three attackers.”

The ex-striker said, “Despite your explanation, I’m not happy,” “I apologize if Dave spelled something incorrectly. Stop abusing my name, people. People think they can treat me with contempt because I don’t participate in the game; I’m just a quiet guy going about my business. Look at the figures and see how they stack up against others.”
