Joe Worrall has spoken about his love and pride in playing for his boyhood club Nottingham Forest.

The 26-year-old club captain has been at the Reds since he was 14, going on to make 202 first-team appearances and counting.

Speaking on TalkSPORT this week, the central defender was full of praise for owner Evangelos Marinakis, admitting that the “sky is the limit” under his ownership.

Marinakis recently claimed that he is taking Forest back to being a “dominant force” in the Premier League, a statement that surprisingly received support from Simon Jordan.

Joe Worrall on loving his time at Nottingham Forest

Throughout his talkSPORT interview, Worrall was full of praise for Marinakis and the work he’s done to improve his club.

“But now, the way that the owner’s so ambitious and speaks so highly of the manager and the football club, he really understands the identity that the city has and the people connected with the club. Why not? The sky is the limit.

“He’s had unbelievable success with Olympiacos over the seasons. He’s been in charge there and especially with Forest so far, every single year that he’s been in charge has been a steady graduation of improvement and of togetherness for the city.

“It’s such a good time to be a Forest fan, and especially I’m very lucky to be to be a player.”

The 26-year-old’s good form on the pitch is set to see him rewarded with a new long-term contract at the City Ground, with Worrall himself confirming that a new deal is close to being finalised.
