Even though Nuno Espirito Santo is still getting to know his team, he already knows a significant bit about one Nottingham Forest custom.


This week, the new Reds head coach received a pre-game haircut and a lesson in history on a trip to the barbershop. And it has only served to bolster his confidence in assuming the leadership role at the City Ground.


Nuno was given a comprehensive explanation of the Mull of Kintyre legend while having his beard trimmed in preparation for today’s match against Manchester United. One of the traveling supporters who had traveled north on Boxing Day to witness Forest defeat Newcastle United gave the dirt.


Throughout a spectacular afternoon at St. James’ Park, Reds supporters made their voices heard as they witnessed their team win 3-1. Nuno claims that after his team pulled off an outstanding victory, hearing the club’s anthem played by the away end gave them tremendous encouragement.


He described the impact that support from the crowd may have as “huge.” “Hearing them up at St. James’ Park… Being Forest makes us incredibly proud.


“I was just at the barbershop, and he was at St. James’ Park on Level 7.” He informed me about the song and stated he was there.


“It is our anthem and means a lot to Forest fans,” he remarked. We should feel honored to be able to perform it at St. James’ Park.


When Nuno arrived to the City Ground for his first game in charge a week ago, he was greeted with warmth. That time, Willy Boly’s red card proved to be the difference maker as the hosts lost 3-2 to Bournemouth.


However, the Portuguese are excited to return to their home ground this evening (5.30pm kickoff). Additionally, he wants his team to present a favorable image of themselves by feeding off the encouragement from the spectators.


He declared, “We have to go for the game and be more positive.” “Our fans sang Mull of Kintyre during the second half at St. James’ Park, demonstrating that. Hearing that encouraged us to move forward.
