Chris Cohen thanks Nottingham Forest boss for his support – and hopes to repay him on the pitch


Club captain Chris Cohen has thanked Nottingham Forest boss Mark Warburton for his support while he is sidelined with injury.

And he hopes to eventually be able to repay the manager by getting back out on the pitch.

Cohen has not featured for the Reds since August due to a knee problem which has required surgery and a series of injections.

He has recently returned to running on grass, though a return to action could still be some time away – with the midfielder having admitted this is his “last chance” to save his career after previously overcoming three serious knee injuries.

The 30-year-old remains a key presence in the dressing room, though, and says he is on hand if any younger members of the squad need any advice.

“I’m always there to collect fines in,” Cohen joked. “But seriously, I’m always there if anyone ever wants anything like that.

“He keeps you really involved, the manager. He’s been fantastic with me, keeping me involved – going to watch games and he’s helped me get on to one of my coaching badges.

“He’s been brilliant with me; I can’t ever really thank him enough for it.

“Hopefully I’ll be able to repay him with performances on the pitch, not just being a good character off it.”

And even if he is not contemplating retirement just yet, the Forest skipper says he is enjoying a different side of the game as he works towards his coaching badges.

“I’m more than halfway through, so I’m not far off having most of them,” he added. “I really love it.”
