NELSON’S NOT YET SETTLED
NOTTINGHAM Forest boss Dougie Freedman believes hard work will eventually pay off for loan signing Nelson Oliveira after admitting that the Portuguese striker is yet to get to grips with life at the club.
Benfica loanee Oliveira spent time with Swansea last season and scored a winner on his debut against QPR.
“He’s a fantastic fella, he really is, and one of the hardest-working players on the training ground,” Freedman said. “But he doesn’t always understand what’s required so you’ve got to be a little bit more patient.
“I don’t think he’s fully settled in to be honest – I think he’s still got to adapt to the pace of the game.”
