Nottingham Forest star Joe Worrall has made some comments about Joao Carvalho and fans have lost their minds.

The Reds central defender enjoyed a call with a supporter as part of Nottingham Forest Community Trust and their support of veterans.

Talk turned to Brennan Johnson and although Worrall agreed his return would be beneficial, he also mentioned Carvalho.

The centre-back said on the call: “It’ll be interesting as well because we’ve got Carvalho – Joao – he’s got to come back from his loan.

“He’s somebody who can be massive for Forest in the future.”

Carvalho has spent the season out on loan with Almeria and he’ll return to Forest in the summer.


The 24-year-old has played 67 times for the Reds since arriving from Benfica in 2018. He has scored six goals and registered nine assists during his time at Forest.

It’s clear that Carvalho lacks consistency but in terms of technical ability he’s never been found wanting.

After Worrall’s comments, supporters have got themselves all excited, dreaming of a Forest team with Carvalho featuring next season.

Here is what some supporters are saying at the defender’s latest comments on the Portuguese wizard.
