How is ex-Nottingham Forest man Hildeberto Pereira getting on these days?

Hildeberto Pereira certainly divided opinions amongst Nottingham Forest fans during his time at the City Ground in 2016/17.

The Benfica youngster signed for Forest on a season-long loan deal in 2016, as Philippe Montanier began to strengthen his squad in preparation for the forthcoming campaign.

An athletic, powerful and exciting figure in defence, Pereira offered Forest depth at right-back and plenty of threat going forward, and he made a total of 25 appearances in all competitions.

Pereira scored his first goal for Forest in October in a win over Birmingham City, but in their next two games against Blackburn and QPR, the Portuguese defender picked up two successive red cards.

Picking up three reds during his time on Trentside, Pereira’s lack of temperament and fiery nature led to plenty of fans losing patience with the 24-year-old.

When Mark Warburton arrived in March and replaced Montanier, Pereira wasn’t to play any part in helping Forest survive the drop to League One – but where is he now?

Where did Tobias Figueiredo start his career at?

After a year’s loan spell at the City Ground, Pereira left Benfica and signed for Legia Warsaw in Poland, making only three appearances for the club.

Halfway through the 2017/18 campaign, he returned to England, joining Northampton Town on a loan deal until the end of the season.

Pereira was to make 12 appearances for the Cobblers, but he seemingly didn’t learn from his previous mistakes, picking up a straight red card in a 2-1 home defeat to Gillingham.

Nowadays, Pereira is plying his trade back in Portugal, playing for Vitória de Setúbal. Playing in a more advanced attacking role on the right-hand side, he has scored six goals in 41 games for the Portuguese outfit.

Pereira has played 15 times thus far this season, and has seemingly been given a new lease of life back in his native country.
