Nottingham Forest fans are understandably fuming at loan signing Arijanet Muric, after the Manchester City youngster cost them three points on opening weekend.
Forest got off to the perfect start against West Brom on Saturday evening, as Matty Cash’s wonderful strike from outside the box put the hosts in front after just eight minutes.
Slaven Bilic’s Baggies forced their way back into the game though, with a little (lot of) help from Muric.
First it was Kyle Edwards who found the net, twisting and turning in the penalty box before firing a low effort that squirmed past Muric.
Matt Phillips then put the Baggies 2-1 in front, as his looping cross from the right wing flew directly in over the hapless 20 year-old’s head.
Muric joined this summer on a season-long loan, brought in to be an upgrade on Costel Pantilimon, and it’s fair to say this is just about the worst possible start he could have had.
The young Kosovo international will have to put in some serious performances in the coming weeks, or judging from the Twitter reactions down below, he may have lost his new fans already…
