Remo Freuler, a loanee from Bologna, was officially revealed in front of the press on Friday afternoon, where he stated that a disagreement with Nottingham Forest coach Steve Cooper led to his Premier League departure after only one full season.

The 31-year-old joined Forest in August for an unknown amount, thought to be in the region of €9 million.

Despite making 28 league appearances and helping the Midlanders secure Premier League survival, Freuler was deemed surplus to requirements and permitted to leave on loan at the end of the summer window.

Despite arriving late in the summer, Freuler has stated that he is match fit, and has recently started both of Switzerland’s games during the international break, contributing a goal in a 2-2 draw with Kosovo last weekend.

“I’m fine; I’ve done all of the training with Nottingham this summer, and I’ve also played in the friendlies; it’s just the league matches that I haven’t played in so far.” I started twice for the national team, so everything is well on the pitch.”

The Swiss international then claimed that his connection with Cooper had soured by the conclusion of the season, leading to his loan to Bologna.

“I don’t think it went badly in Nottingham,” he explained. “Our goal was to survive, and we succeeded.” From a personal standpoint, the only games I missed were the final five of the season.

“First, he [Cooper] made me captain, and then I’m not sure what happened.” I spoke with him, but he didn’t explain what was wrong, and by the end, I guess we were on a somewhat different wavelength.”
