Nottingham Forest defender Serge Aurier has appeared on a French TV show and has done something Reds fans will love. The man who signed for free in the summer was yesterday on a Canal Plus soccer program before his international commitment.
Aurier has been a fantastic player for the Reds. His experience has been crucial and he is going to be a very important player for Forest in their bid to stay in the Premier League.
Keeping the man who spent many years at Tottenham will likely depend on the outcome of his effort to survive. Forest will almost certainly try to keep it should they win their battle to avoid finishing in the bottom three.
Aurier is a man with a wealth of experience playing for some of the best clubs. He reached the Champions League final with Tottenham and also reached the semi-final with Villarreal last season.
The 30-year-old will turn his attention to doing well for Ivory Coast now. They face a great double against Comoros in their qualifying campaign for the Africa Cup of Nations.
Aurier has been a faithful servant of his country. He has made 82 appearances for his country, scoring four goals and hopes to increase the number of appearances from him this week.
Aurier has done something that fans will love.
It is something incredible to see a player from abroad buy what Forest is. The player has done something on Canal Plus that, naturally, will delight the red fans.
He was seen on the TV show wearing two retro Forest jerseys. The first was a green one from the 1990s that was used briefly as a third kit.
The second he was seen wearing was when he was introduced on the show. It was a white number that the club used as an away jersey, also in the 1990s.
Forest fans have seen too many players come from abroad in recent years and not pay much attention to the club. Aurier cannot be considered one of those. His antics on and off the pitch should help him grow ever closer to the Forest fan base.
