“Incredible”: What Nottingham Forest star Morgan Gibbs-White tweeted after Nuno left Wolves is now well worth seeing…

Nottingham Forest is on the brink of appointing Nuno Espirito Santo as their new head coach, following the recent dismissal of Steve Cooper. This development has gained particular interest in light of a tweet from Forest star Morgan Gibbs-White in 2021, made when Espirito Santo departed Wolverhampton Wanderers.

After 27 months at Nottingham Forest, Steve Cooper was relieved of his duties by owner Evangelos Marinakis, paving the way for the Portuguese manager Nuno Espirito Santo to take charge. Gibbs-White and Willy Boly, both part of the Forest squad, had previously played under Espirito Santo at Wolves. Boly had commended the manager’s training methods, highlighting the familiarity between the coach and certain players in the new Forest lineup.

Espirito Santo left Wolves in May 2021 after a successful tenure that included promotion from the Championship and consecutive seventh-place finishes in the Premier League. During his 199 games in charge, Wolves won 95, resulting in a win percentage of 47.74%, and witnessed 277 goals scored.

Morgan Gibbs-White, who has evolved significantly since his time at Wolves, had tweeted a farewell message to Espirito Santo in 2021, expressing his best wishes for the manager’s future endeavors. The tweet indicated a positive and respectful relationship between the player and the departing coach.

As Espirito Santo takes the helm at Nottingham Forest, there is anticipation regarding Gibbs-White’s potential growth under his guidance. Reports suggest that the manager prefers utilizing Gibbs-White in a central role, a detail gleaned from an article in The Guardian.

While the current season has presented challenges for Gibbs-White, with only one goal scored and criticism for set-pieces, the historic tweet from the player indicates a foundation of mutual respect and hints at a promising working relationship between him and Espirito Santo at Forest.
