Hildeberto Pereira is a name that is still remembered around Nottingham Forest after a brief but certainly memorable period at the club not so long ago.
A player with a hair-style as eye-catching as his playing style, Pereira had plenty of potential but perhaps did not always show his best side with rashness coming in to his game far too often.
Even so, when City Ground HQ took to Twitter to ask fans of their immediate memories of him, it was clear that there is still fondness felt towards him – even if supporters also can’t forget his ability to get sent off frequently as well.
Let’s take a look at some of what has been said about him on Twitter:

Goal vs Brum one of the best I’ve ever seen live

He was young and raw during his time at the City Ground but certainly had some fine moments during his time in Garibaldi red.
A player that could get you out of your seat and get you tearing your hair out, he’s certainly a bit of a modern cult hero.
