Nuno Espírito Santo advises two Nottingham Forest players, saying, “He has to improve.”
During this week’s exclusive interview with ESPN Brasil, Nuno Espírito Santos, the manager of Nottingham Forest, shared some fascinating statements regarding the team.
The manager spoke extensively about Murillo and Danilo, the two Brazilians who came to the City Ground the previous year.
This season, Murillo has made 20 appearances for Nottingham Forest, starting most of them since October. Despite this, Nuno Espírito Santo believes the 21-year-old still has a lot of room for improvement, particularly given the number of risks he makes with the ball in his possession.
“Murillo is quite high quality. He’s well built and a very quick defender, but I don’t focus only on his positive attributes. It is preferable to work on making what is already good rather than altering it. He now has to work on certain areas of his game. Remembering that a defender’s primary responsibility is to defend is important, Nuno Espírito Santo told ESPN Brasil.
“It’s not that he gets carried away; rather, it’s just his personality. He occasionally feels at ease making choices that, in my opinion, belong in a different area of the pitch. We need to be more realistic when it comes to defense (laughter).
Regarding Danilo, the Nottingham Forest manager expressed his admiration for the midfield player while also pointing out certain areas in which he still needs to grow.
That is crucial to remember. A player needs time to adjust to a league as tough as the Premier League, where competition is at an extremely high level. Danilo has a lot of wonderful qualities, but he needs time to mature.
He is a talented midfield player who can play out wide, cover the field, run the course, and score goals. He has also demonstrated that he is a good arrival in the area. He still has a lot of room for improvement in a few areas, including his ability to make decisions and make accurate passes. He has a lot of potential, and we want to help him develop so that he may become the elite player that we all aspire to be.
Nuno Espírito Santo has played nine games since joining Nottingham Forest in December. He has three victories, three draws, and three losses. Since defeating Manchester United just before the new year, he hasn’t won a league match.
After the draw with Bournemouth the previous weekend, the Tricky Trees are currently 16th in the Premier League. They’re currently getting ready for tonight’s FA Cup match against Bristol City.
