Glad to be back

9 September 2015

Nottingham Forest striker Nelson Oliveira says he is pleased to have another crack at playing in England following a spell at Swansea City last season.

The Benfica loanee enjoyed a four-month stint at the Liberty Stadium earlier in the year and admits his time in South Wales will give him a running start to life at The City Ground.

Speaking to Forest Player HD he said: “My six months in Swansea helped me a lot. Football in England is much different to Spain and Portugal and I felt that difference when I came over here last season.

“I needed three or four months to adapt to the English game but now I feel much better because of that experience at Swansea.

“I love English football so this is a great opportunity for me and I’m really pleased to have this chance.”

The 24-year-old completed the formalities of his loan move on transfer deadline day and with a few training sessions now under his belt he is looking forward to featuring at QPR on Saturday.

He said: “My first few days here have been good. My teammates and the manager have helped me a lot and I’m happy to be here.

“I always try to give my best and my target is to score goals. My job is to score goals and help the team to win games of football. Hopefully the supporters will like me and will like the way I play.

“My ambition is to help Nottingham Forest have a good season and to finish in the top seven. The job for me is to work hard and try and help the team succeed.”
