‘Goodnight sweet prince’, ‘Another wage off the bill’ – Many Nottingham Forest fans react to transfer agreement



He promised quite a lot after arriving last summer with experience in European football, but Fouad Bachirou has departed Nottingham Forest after ending up as a bit-part player.

The 31-year-old joined the Reds in August 2020 after a spell at Swedish giants Malmo, in which he was a regular in their engine room in the Allsvenskan and the UEFA Europa League.

There was excitement when the Comoros international arrived, but Bachirou’s spell on Trentside proved to be a nightmare.

The 2020-21 season saw Bachirou play just three times in all competitions – he spent a lot of the first half of the season on the sidelines with a hamstring injury after making his debut in the EFL Cup in September against Barnsley and he wasn’t seen again until January when he played against Swansea in the FA Cup then once again against the Tykes in the Championship.

Who did Nottingham Forest sell Matty Cash to in 2020?

Bachirou then failed to make Chris Hughton’s squad for the remainder of the campaign and along with the likes of Harry Arter and Carl Jenkinson he’s been expected to find a new club before the end of the transfer window.

He’s managed to do just that as he’s secured a permanent move to Cypriot side Omonoia Nicosia, bringing his time at the City Ground to an end.

Forest fans have been reacting to Bachirou’s departure and as you can imagine for a player that made just three appearances for the club it isn’t one that supporters are getting into a frenzy about.
