Nottingham Forest coach Karanka lauds Ansarifard
Nottingham Forest coach Aitor Karanka has praised their new signing Karim Ansarifard.
The 28-year-old striker joined the English side on Saturday an 18-month contract for an undisclosed fee.
At club level, Ansarifard spent seven years in the Iranian league before signing for Spanish club Osasuna, where he spent a single season ahead of a move to Greece.
In the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia, he scored a late equalizer against Portugal in the group stage.
“Karim is an important signing because he gives us an alternative option,” Karanka said.
“He is a very good player, he’ll be a good person in the changing room and he has shown how hungry he is to succeed,” the coach added.
