Micah Richards is a huge fan of Nottingham Forest it would seem and he’s given praise to Steve Cooper and Morgan Gibbs-White.
The pundit has used his Daily Mail column as a chance to praise Forest. The Reds have secured their Premier League status after a 1-0 win over Arsenal.
Gibbs-White was in fine form once again but then what’s new? He’s been a fantastic signing made by the Reds and at 23-years-old, it’s scary how good he could become.
As for Cooper, his stock really couldn’t get any higher. The relief was etched all over his face at the weekend as Forest completed their survival mission.
The Reds won courtesy of a goal from Taiwo Awoniyi and in the process, they handed the Premier League title to Manchester City.
Richards has now taken the chance to praise Cooper for his work. He’s also had some positive words to say about the fans and it would appear he loves Gibbs-White.
He said in the Daily Mail: “I went to the City Ground earlier in the season just to watch a game as a spectator and I couldn’t believe the experience.
“I wanted to get a feel for Nottingham Forest and I was blown away by the atmosphere inside the stadium. It certainly helped them get over the line.
“What a job Steve Cooper has done, another man who must be spoken about in the conversation for Manager of the Year.
“People criticised the way they signed so many players but he’s made it work. The faith he’s put in the outstanding Morgan Gibbs-White has been richly rewarded.”
Richards gives praise to Cooper and Gibbs-White
People mocked Forest when they signed Gibbs-White for the money they did. How Leeds, Everton or Leicester would have loved him in their team this season.
Without Cooper, the Reds might not have landed the creative spark and he might have found his way elsewhere.
The forward clearly loves working under Cooper and quite frankly the pair look like a match made in heaven.
Hopefully, Gibbs-White will now stay out of the clutches of bigger clubs and he can help Forest kick on again next season.
