Matt Turner's Journey to Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest's latest acquisition, goalkeeper Matt Turner, has recently opened up about his decision to depart from Arsenal and his journey to joining the Forest ranks.

Turner, who has been a pivotal figure for Forest this season, shared insights into how manager Steve Cooper played a significant role in his choice to don the Garibaldi Red jersey.

His quest for consistent action culminated in a transfer to Steve Cooper's squad, a move that has evidently rejuvenated his career. He has now shed light on the persuasive charm of Cooper, convincing him that Nottingham Forest was the perfect fit.

In an interview with The Athletic, Turner disclosed, "I asked a lot of questions about what they saw in me; about why they felt I was a good fit here. Those conversations ticked every box when it came to what I wanted to hear." He further revealed that his wife was a witness to these discussions and gave her enthusiastic approval. Turner's unwavering determination to join Forest remained steadfast even when other offers came knocking; his focus was resolute, and he knew that this was the destination he truly desired.

Turner's admiration for Cooper's managerial style was evident as he explained, "I love the way he relates to players. He gets in on the conversations in the changing room. He is just a 'Tells you like it is' manager, which is really refreshing for a lot of guys." Cooper's straightforward approach and his ability to foster a strong rapport with his squad members earned him praise from Turner.
