This may not be the best way to treat someone, particularly as it’s his birthday.
But that’s the treatment that Aro Muric has been getting from Nottingham Forest fans in the wake of some events that occurred on Wednesday night at his parent club.
After Claudio Bravo was sent off for Manchester City in their Champions League game with Atalanta, the Citizens could be staring at a goalkeeper crisis after Kyle Walker had to deputise.
Their first-choice keeper Ederson, meanwhile, sustained an injury in the same game.
As a result, there were a lot of Nottingham Forest fans who were flat out demanding that Pep Guardiola take him back to the Etihad, responding following the game and after the club posted that it was his birthday.

Muric started off the season as the club’s number one, but has found himself on the bench since the end of August and replaced with Brice Samba in goal. Since then, he’s only made one appearance during the Carabao Cup defeat to Arsenal.
If these Forest fans had their way, that may be the last time they see him between the sticks for the club.
Please take muric back

He might get more game time if they brought him back, so perhaps it’s in Muric’s best interests as well.
