Jesse Lingard and Liverpool ace Darwin Nunez pictured together at tattoo parlour

Liverpool ace Darwin Nunez and former Manchester United star Jesse Lingard have been pictured together at a tattoo parlour.

The pair both had some unexpected time off after Premier League fixtures were cancelled at the weekend following the death of the Queen. Liverpool and Lingard's new club Nottingham Forest don't meet until October, but the pair got an early chance to feel each other out at the Artemis Tattoo Studio in Manchester.

The shop is one of Lingard's favourites and a place where the England international often gets new ink courtesy of tattoo artist Dale McGovern. This time he was joined in the studio by Reds forward Nunez, who began his Anfield career with a red card against Crystal Palace.

Nunez is fond of a tattoo or two himself and appeared to get some new ink on his right leg. Afterwards the Uruguayan posed for a snap alongside Lingard, Dale and another artist called Nacho.

Lingard has had a middling start to his career in a Forest shirt after joining the recently-promoted Premier League side from United in the summer. Steve Cooper's outfit sit second from bottom of the table having collected four points from their opening six games.

The 29-year-old signed a one-year deal with Forest and spoke recently about his desires after football. He said: "I want things in place with my little one for when I finish football, so she has something to look up to and it's about what's next. I'd like to go into acting.

"I'm strong enough to deal with all that criticism now. I've been through a lot and it's always me that will try to break the mould and set the next thing up for the next generation.

"I started the clothing brand the week before we played Liverpool, but we got a win in the week. I do my YouTube stuff, I have my media company and they're all things I enjoy. I love football, it's my passion, but when I finish I want to work on the next thing and my family can come into it when they're older."
