Aina picks Awoniyi as one of Nottingham Forest’s important players
Ola Aina has named Taiwo Awoniyi, a member of his international team, as a key player for Nottingham Forest.
Last season, Awoniyi led Tricky Trees in goals scored in the Premier League.
Throughout the current season, the striker has continued to play in an impressive manner for Steve Cooper's team.
The 26-year-old has contributed two assists and three goals to the Reds' offense so far this year.
One of the key players at the team, according to Aina, who this summer joined Nottingham Forest on a free transfer, is Awoniyi.
“First and foremost, everyone’s key in the team, and everyone’s got a role to play,” Aina told the club’s official website.
“There will be moments in the season where we’ll look to someone, and we’ve got a few of them on our team: Morgan, Callum, Anthony, and Taiwo.”
Nottingham Forest will face Brentford in their next Premier League game on Sunday.
