Nottingham Forest manager Steve Cooper provided an update on Nuno Tavares. The Arsenal loanee was injured in the Reds’ 2-0 loss to Manchester City yesterday.
The left-sided winger was making his debut for the Reds. Tavares, on the other hand, exited the field clutching his groin and may now be forced to sit out.
Right now, no news must be considered good news. The Reds have other options at left-back, but they’ll want to make sure Tavares is available.
Cooper was asked about the 23-year-old on loan from Arsenal after his withdrawal at the Etihad Stadium. He currently has no conclusive information regarding the player.
“I don’t know how he is,” he told Nottinghamshire Live. I believe he suffered a groin injury. We’ll have to look into him. That’s how it appeared to me, but I’m not sure.” Cooper, the head coach of the Forest, will be hoping for good news on Tavares.
It would be devastating to lose the child for an extended period of time. It wouldn’t be ideal, and perhaps there will be some good news before the weekend.
Last season, Tavares shone for Marseille. He scored six goals from his left-sided wing-back position last season, and Forest will be hoping for similar success this season.
In the early parts of yesterday’s game, the brilliant player did turn off. He had no idea where Kyle Walker was behind him, so he set up Phil Foden for the opening.
Tavares, on the other hand, is a talented player, and Forest will be hoping that this injury doesn’t keep him out for too long.
