Harry Toffolo has lauded the impact of Steve Cooper at Nottingham Forest and he’s also been impressed with the club’s coaching staff.

The man who helped Huddersfield to the Play-Off Final last season has been discussing his gaffer with The Sun.

The 27-year-old started yesterday as Forest drew 1-1 with Wolves in the Premier League. It was his first start since the reverse fixture back in October.

Toffolo was challenged with stopped Adama Traore and in fairness to the player, he coped well with the speed demon.

It’s been a frustrating few months for the Forest man. In January he was denied a chance to join Anderlecht at the eleventh hour, with everything agreed.

But, Toffolo has got his head down, however, and hasn’t sulked despite that failed transfer to Belgium.

In Cooper, Forest have a manager to be proud of and hopefully, he will be at the club for a long time yet.

Toffolo agrees and hailed his head coach during the recent interview he gave to the media.

He told The Sun: “The respect I have – let alone for the city and the club – for Steve is incredible. He’s a man’s man and a loyal person who I’ve so much time for.

“I know we live in a results-led business but sometimes you look at the person and think that’s someone you want to work for.

“He ticks all the boxes as do all the coaching staff. Alan Tate, Jamie Robinson, Andy Reid, Danny Alcock. They’re all fantastic people.

“You look forward to seeing them every day. Look at the number of points we picked up when the gaffer got his new contract. It was phenomenal.”

Cooper lauded by Toffolo

Everyone associated with Forest adores Cooper and he should remain the club’s boss for a long time yet.

The Reds need some wins quickly if they’re to stay in the Premier League and Tuesday’s game against Leeds looks massive.

It was great to see Toffolo produce such a solid display yesterday. He gave his all, despite not starting a game for quite some time.

Toffolo will hope he’s done enough to get himself a run of games now.

The player was a cheap option in the summer at £2.5 million and he’s a very useful backup to Renan Lodi.
