Nottingham Forest star Brennan Johnson has taken aim at the famous Leeds United fans after his goal dumped Jesse Marsch in the job centre. The Reds beat the Whites 1-0 on Sunday afternoon to see the American boss handed his p45.
Johnson has been in fine form since the World Cup. He’s really kicked on during the team’s Premier League campaign and scored once again to sink Leeds at the weekend.
The 21-year-old performer is Forest’s matchwinner on his day. His goal on Sunday was a stunning volley that roared into the net leaving Illan Meslier absolutely no chance.
After the game, Johnson was interviewed by Radio Nottingham. He was quizzed on the game, his goal and the backing from the supporters.
During Forest’s last home game in the Premier League, Johnson poked fun at Leicester and he was at it against during his post-match chat on Sunday.
Leeds fans like to self-acclaim themselves as the one club that will take thousands of fans to every game and don’t ever feel they can be outdone.
Johnson doesn’t seem to agree though and fired a shot, telling BBC Radio Nottingham: “The fans were brilliant.
“Especially with the way the game went, you know, Leeds had a lot of the ball at times. But. we could only hear out fans today and we really appreciate them.”
Johnson has taken aim at Leeds fans
It’s hard not to agree with Johnson here. But for the usual 59 renditions of Marching on Together with the game goalless, Leeds fans were pretty quiet.
In fairness to the Whites faithful they were at the end of their tether. Marsch hasn’t been a particularly good appointment and once again Leeds played decent and lost to Forest.
Johnson’s comments perhaps suggest that Forest fans are well aware of some of the outside claims that were made about them following a hectic summer.
The team spirit seems high and the Reds seem keen to ensure everyone knows how happy they are after each victory that is claimed.
Johnson can say whatever he wishes when Forest keep winning matches. The youngster has much more in the locker and he will fancy firing the Reds to safety in the coming weeks.
