Benalouane praises incredible support

26 March 2019

Nottingham Forest defender Yohan Benalouane has been amazed by the levels of support for The Reds as the end of the season approaches.

The Tunisian defender has made an instant impact at The City Ground since his move in January and is determined to help Forest into the Premier League to reward the fans for their support.

He said: "I came here and obviously the reality is that we are not in the Premier League, we are in the Championship, but wow. The stadium is always full and when we go away the fans are always there.

"At away games you can always hear our fans and on the pitch, I am so proud to play for this team. I know that when I go to the pitch we are not 11 players, we are 12 every time. I am proud to be here, I am happy and I want to go up with this club.

"I feel that this is what the supporters want and when they all come here to The City Ground, you can feel it. For us, this is amazing and I am really enjoying my life here."

Benalouane knows that time is running out in the season and believes that the strength of the collective group can help Forest finish the season in the top six.

He said: "I came here for promotion. We have a really good manager and the team is really good with a lot of good players. We are working every day.

"The team can make mistakes but we learn every day, whether you win or lose. At this moment, we have to learn and listen to the manager and look forward.

"Our target is to improve a lot because it is not only one or two players, we are a team and that is important to move forward as a team."
