Nottingham Forest boss praises youngster he identifies as future captain



It has been a great week for young Nottingham Forest defender Joe Worrall. The 20-year old put pen to paper on a new four-and-a-half year deal that will keep him at the City Ground until 2022 and Mark Warburton has said he sees the defender as a future Forest captain.

The ex-Rangers boss has already handed the academy graduate the captaincy once this season after injuries and suspension had hit the more senior candidates. However, he said he’d have no issues doing it again in the years to come. “At 20 years of age he’s a very focused young professional. He’s aware of what it means to captain Nottingham Forest. He’s aware of what it means to the supporters. He knows the passion of the club and the history of the club. Absolutely, going forward Joe Worrall can be captain of Nottingham Forest,” he told the Nottingham Post.

Yet, Warburton still wants more from his young star and called for him to strive for another deal. “His aim is to deliver a level of performance that means we have to offer him another deal. His focus now is being the best he can be, in every single game. He’s got all the talent in the world.”

The Verdict

This is very high praise from Mark Warburton for Worrall and surely will be a massive boost for him ahead of the next few games.

The young defender clearly has a character that impresses the manager but needs to keep his feet on the ground and maintain this level, which I’m sure he will do.

He has the potential to be a key man and it’s up to Worrall to deliver on it. He has a manager who trusts him and a platform to showcase his talents.
