Nottingham Forest fans are heaping praise on defender Tobias Figueiredo following an official club Twitter post.
The Portuguese defender joined the Nottinghamshire outfit in 2018 on a permanent deal, under a four-year contract (via BBC Sport). He was brought in from Sporting Lisbon originally on loan, but his contribution to the Reds gave the club enough reason to bring him in full-time.
Will Nottingham Forest be promoted this season?
Fans have flocked to the club’s tweet to hail the centre-back, with one supporter commenting that he ‘deserves more credit than he gets’. As a defender, it’s not often your name is the highlight of the team and it’s clear fans thing Figueiredo is in need of acknowledgement. This season, the 26-year-old has contributed to two goals and nine clean sheets (via Transfermarkt).
This guy deserves more credit than he gets.

Rock solid performer 👏👏

Solid since he arrived. No nonsense, does his job well. Which is pretty much what you want from your CH imo.
