Nottingham Forest midfielder Orel Mangala has suggested on Twitter that he’s ready to return for the Reds. The midfielder has missed the last three games after picking up a hamstring problem against Everton.

Mangala has looked the real deal in the games he has played since arriving at Forest. He was outstanding against West Ham and produced a decent cameo against Newcastle on the opening day.

Forest snapped up the Belgian international from VfB Stuttgart for £12 million. He has bags of potential and looks to be a seriously astute signing made by the club.

Mangala has lots of top-level experience. He made 109 appearances for Stuttgart and before that, he played 34 times for Hamburg and is now set for stardom at Forest.

The player joins a plethora of midfield options in the Forest ranks. Lewis O’Brien, Remo Freuler and Cheikhou Kouyate have also been signed; with Ryan Yates and Jack Colback still at the club.

Mangala looks like becoming vital though. He’s been sorely missed during his absence and having him back will be a massive boost for Steve Cooper ahead of Friday’s game with Fulham.

Mangala ready to return for Forest

The 24-year-old midfielder has delighted the fan base with his performances on the pitch. Now, he’s suggested on Twitter that he’s set to return ahead of this Friday’s game.

Mangala has even created himself a new buzzword on the social media platform. He’s made a play on the word mentality but opting to use ‘Mangality’.

The Reds supporters will dearly hope that he’s available to Cooper this week. His absence has been felt and Forest’s midfield of Yates and Kouyate didn’t really work against Bournemouth.

This buzzword that has been adopted should whip the fans into a frenzy. Last week, he posted on Instagram that he’s now returned to training and the hope will be that he can take part against Fulham.
