Moise Kean was a shock target for Nottingham Forest during the summer transfer window. On Sunday, he suffered the embarrassing fate of being sent off after just 40 seconds of being on the pitch!
Juventus decided to introduce Kean in their game against Roma. The youngster hasn’t been considered the first choice this season but trailing 1-0 they called for the Italian talent.
Shortly after, Massimiliano Allegri must have been wishing he’d not bothered. Following a tussle with Gianluca Mancini, Kean kicked out at the Roma defender and was subsequently shown his marching orders.
Forest were keen to sign the Juventus striker back in the summer. Forest looked at several strikers and were trying to strike a deal between the Old Lady and Everton.
Recently, Kean made his move to Juventus permanent. That deal will officially go through during the summer, ending an absolute nightmare time of things at Goodison Park.

Forest target Kean sent off after 40 seconds
Kean would have been a huge risk for the Reds. His record in England was pretty poor, with the 23-year-old scoring just four goals in 39 appearances for the Toffees.
His time at PSG wasn’t too bad. There, he found the net 17 times in 41 appearances and now he will hope to get back on track with Juventus.
Forest added a number of strikers in the summer. Taiwo Awoniyi and Emmanuel Dennis checked in, whilst Jesse Lingard and Morgan Gibbs-White also bolstered the ranks.
Kean was always a bit of a long shot. He was unlikely to come cheap and given his less-than-impressive record in the Premier League, perhaps Forest were better off out of this one.
On Sunday, he showcased a side of himself that could hamper the progress of his career. Steve Cooper is a wonderful man manager but putting Kean on the straight and narrow might have been a task too far even for the great man.
