Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has joked that Mohamed Salah must have a clause in his new contract which stipulates that Darwin Nunez must take penalties. Nunez opened his Reds account against RB Leipzig on Thursday night after regular penalty taker Salah allowed him to take a second half spot kick after Luis Diaz had been fouled.
