25 games for Nottingham Forest: How is Hildeberto Pereira getting on these days?



Hildeberto Pereira scored two goals and was sent off three times in his 25 appearances for Nottingham Forest during a brief loan spell at the City Ground.

The 22-year-old joined the Reds on a season-long loan from Benfica in the summer of 2016 – signed by Philippe Montanier – and it’s fair to say that he endured a mixed spell on Trentside.

Pereira made 22 Championship appearances for the Forest, but he’d already been sent off for the Reds twice by the time he scored his first goal for the club.

His first red card came in a 2-2 draw at Aston Villa, where he helped inspire Forest to a memorable comeback, but was then shown a second yellow card for running into the crowd to celebrate Henri Lansbury’s late equaliser with the away fans.

Pereira was sent off on two more occasions for Forest that season, but he scored his first goal for the Reds in a 3-1 win over Birmingham at the City Ground in October 2016, a first-time finish from Ben Osborn’s low cross.

He scored again in the 2-1 defeat at Huddersfield on Boxing Day, but would only go on to feature for the club on seven more occasions after that and his loan spell was eventually cut short.

His last outing for the Reds was the 1-0 loss to Burton Albion, which came just a few days before Mark Warburton took charge at the City Ground.

After leaving Forest, Pereira had a spell a Polish side Legia Warsaw but struggled to make an impact due to injury. He also had a brief loan spell at Northampton Town, where he made 14 appearances in League One.

Pereira admitted in 2018 that he considered quitting football during that period, but he’s been able to get his career back on track in his native Portugal with Vitoria Setubal.
