Awoniyi ‘steps up’ fitness ahead pre-season

By Daily Sports Nigeria on July 10, 2024

Nottingham Forest have reported back to pre-season training ahead of the new Premier League campaign.

The Reds were spotted checking in at Wilford Lane on Monday as things got started in preparation for 2024/25.

Forest scraped to survival by the skin of their teeth during the last campaign, and Nuno Espirito Santo will hope for better this time around.

For a number of players, the pre-season campaign will represent a chance for them to prove themselves ahead of the competitive games.

Forest have one player who has abandoned his personal plans this summer and has instead embarked on rigorous training to prepare as best as he can, and that is Taiwo Awoniyi.

Last season was such a frustrating one for Awoniyi. He began the season fit but then required groin surgery and kept breaking down.

In total, he managed just 23 appearances, scoring six goals and claiming three assists across the campaign.

Nigerian journalist Oluwashina Okeleji shared what Awoniyi had been doing this summer – and also shared a quote from him on his injuries.

He posted on X, “#NFFC striker Taiwo Awoniyi swapped party islands for Nigeria to recharge and give to the community during the off-season.

“The Super Eagle returned to Europe to step up his fitness ahead of Forest’s pre-season this week.

“Awoniyi admits, ‘I listen more to my body now.’
