Nottingham Forest midfielder Remo Freuler is still finding his feet as a Premier League player and has made two appearances. Last night he showcased just how good he could be by starring for Switzerland against Spain.

He was known as ‘the conductor’ when he was busy pulling the strings for Atalanta. Freuler became a real cult hero for the Serie A outfit and as a result, their fans were sad to see him leave.

Forest fans haven’t seen the best of him just yet. He’s played just two Premier League games for the Reds and he’s busy trying to get up to speed in England.

The fact he’s not shone yet doesn’t make him a bad player, however. Last night, for example, he was up against the world-clas Sergio Busquets and the burgeoning duo Gavi and Pedri.

In the case of Gavi, he was linked with a move to Liverpool in the summer. Barcelona were never going to sell the player, despite a £50 million bid being prepared.

Last night, Freuler along with the help of Arsenal star Granit Xhaka and Djibril Sow kept the Spanish wonderkids at bay to help Switzerland to a famous 2-1 win.

Freuler was magnificent. Some stats emerged courtesy of Who Scored and highlighted that he’s not really the problem when it comes to solving the issue at Forest.

The 30-year-old finished with four ground duels won, four aerial duels won, a couple of clearances, three tackles and three interceptions as his side claimed a big win.

Freuler can become a big Premier League player

Gavi has had a £1 billion release clause placed in his contract by Barcelona. With that in mind, it’s easy to see how highly he’s valued by the Catalan giants.

Last night, he was stifled. Freuler did a number on him and Pedri, showcasing exactly what sort of player he can become for the Reds over the next year or two.

Maybe, just maybe, the problem isn’t Freuler. Placing another midfielder into the system could help things, or perhaps another player will have to act as the fall guy.

Players who have featured regularly for teams qualifying for Europe don’t become bad ones after a couple of appearances.

Forest fans have to give Freuler some time to find his feet on Trentside. Once he’s done that, he could become a real star for the Reds as they bid to stay in the Premier League.
