Nottingham Forest: Fans reminisce about former player John Metgod - Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest have remembered former player John Metgod as he celebrates his 62nd birthday, leading fans to speak highly of the man they once cheered on from the terraces.

The ex-defender had quite an illustrious career which saw him win the league on four occasions in his native Netherlands as well as turning out for Real Madrid, where he won the league twice.

He was also capped by his country and created a lasting legacy at the City Ground, where he scored 15 goals in 116 appearances between 1984-87.

On Thursday the club posted a tweet sending their birthday wishes to the centre-back alongside a video of a memorable goal he scored against West Ham.

Here are some of the things being said by fans.
